Star Trek's Capt. James Kirk versus his enemy, candy corn

 

To be buried alive…within a dead world…surrounded by nothing but miles and miles of the most waxy, disturbing food stuff in the known galaxy…

Here’s a book I’ve had since my earliest days. I love this book. I used to be able to read and understand Japanese when I was much younger, but tragically I’ve lost the ability.

This book is great because it covers not just Ultraman, but also other old school Ultra folk, like Ultra Seven, Ultraman Leo, Ultraman Taro, Father of Ultra, and Mother of Ultra.

Good times.

Sin Street (originally titled Scarlet Patrol) by Dorine Manners is a vintage tale of call girls, crime, and the vice racket.

Sin Street Good Girl Art pulp book about vice prostitution and crime

This book rips “the veil off modern bordellos, fake massage parlors, and ‘dance studios’. It is the cold, hard truth…”

Nice example from the era of good girl art, pulp books. I love the green hand contrasted against the woman’s intense red dress.

Invaders From Rigel by Fletcher Pratt, from the golden age of science fiction.

Invaders From Rigel is a vintage Sci Fi tale. The book has a very groovy cover illustration.

Classic Vintage Sci-Fi Art

The colours are strong, intense, sort of pre-psychedelic. I love this groovy sort of “futuristic” art work that was prevalent during the glory days of the American Space programme.

Man, I can’t wait for the future!
