Rejected why?

Imaginative Tales achieves tube girls
Allan Anderson illustrates questionable rescues

Planet Stories, which had a run from 1939 to 1955 usually didn’t skimp on the sexy for its covers either, and this one painted by pulp great Frank Kelly Freas (1922-2005) is no exception, what with its flaming redhead in her skin-tight cleavage-revealing armor being menaced by…something.

A piece of interior artwork, illustrating Gordon R. Dickson’s story “The Man the Worlds Rejected,” neatly seems to marry the space babe with the hot librarian.

Print that out on cardstock and you’d have a very nifty bookmark. The illustration is, sadly, uncredited.
