Great Covers Series 3 – Famous Fantastic Mysteries

Famous Fantastic Mysteries ran from 1939 to 1953. Most of the cover were by Lawrence and Virgil Finlay. It started out with stories mostly of reprints from the earlier pulp magazines published by the Munsey company. Later in ’43 they started reprinting novels that were only previously printed in book form. These issues were full of some fine interior art as well. Most notably Virgil Finlay, my personal fave of the period.
