Vintage British pulp covers by Ron Turner (and others)

Ron Turner cover for Wonders of the Spaceways

Dark Roasted Blend offers up a selection of British pulp science fiction cover illustrations, many by illustrator Ron Turner; the post links on to this fantastic Flickr stream where quite a few of the images were found.

Turner turns out to be an interesting case of a British artist who was inspired by American pulp magazine covers and then went on to do his own art for magazines, paperbacks, and comics – including a long run on the comic The Daleks and a less successful and much shorter run for 2000AD.

I’ve previously featured his Magnetic Brain cover here. These Practical Mechanics covers give me a yen to add Impractical Mechanics as a title for the Pulp-O-Mizer; but I’ve already done Inadvisable Science, and that’s pretty much the same gag, isn’t it?
