Leprechaun Tales:

The Fantastic Adventures of Tink, Jing and Nastee

by William P. McGivern

Tink, a leprechaun with the belief in goodness of people, is ever optimistic. He never fails in sharing his beliefs and even making bets on the goodness of people, despite Nasteeā€™s persistent pessimism.

Nastee never misses a trick to undo whatever goodness that can be undone. Along with Jing the beautiful elfin music sprite, the three of them battle Nazis, lions, and gremlins, as they make their way unseen in the world of humans.

Originally published in the 1940s, these five stories by William P. McGivern, offer joyful escapist fun for kids and adults alike.

There’s Life on Uranus

Metallic Mechanical Cylinder Coming Out of Uranus (Oh, that's bad)

Metallic Mechanical Cylinder Coming Out of Uranus (Oh, that's bad!)

Did you know there’s not only life on Uranus, but it comes as a cylindrical metallic device that lives in a hole (with a small Oscar the Grouch inside). And it’s just possible that it has a vibrate mode.

Okay, I’m done with the double entendres. These images are from the back covers of Fantastic Adventures magazine from the first nine issues that started in 1939. They’re all by Frank Paul the first of the original SF pulp artists. They’re a bit quaint now, but I’m sure they were viewed with awe-inspired sense of wonder in their day.
