    Description

    Complete Run of 1938-41 Astounding Science Fiction Pulps. This lot includes the entire January through December issues for the years 1938-41, as published by Street and Smith. All issues are 8vo (6.5" x 9.5"), complete and in very good or better condition with slight chipping to the extremities, an occurrence common with the grade of paper used. No tape or other repairs, including trimming have been applied to this run. The covers are still bright, enhancing the fantastic artwork. Astounding Stories was one of the seminal science fiction magazines which lives on today as Analog Science Fact & Fiction. In March of 1938 under the editorship of John W. Campbell Astounding Stories underwent a name change to Astounding Science Fiction. Included with this lot is a hardcover copy facsimile of the July, 1939 issue of Astounding Science Fiction, published by Southern Illinois Press. From the Ventura Collection.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
