The Moon of the Six SaturnsClick for larger image

Ken R. Comments: This beauty is from 1945, Duchess Publishing, Canada. It is infamous for it’s ugliness as well as crediting the editor, John W. Campbell, as the author. Ray Cummings sued to have it removed from the shelves, thus it’s scarcity.

You might remember this from here.

Published 1945
