Space Operas in pulps, art, corn and Hubbard.

Sept. 1949, "Startling Stories."

In this issue Beyond the Black Nebula by L. Ron Hubbard, (as by Rene Lafayete).  The covers of these old pulps have some wonderful art, full of corn of course.  Hubbard got tired of, as he said, “writing for a penny a word.”  He invented Scientology which paid a lot more, it was still writing fiction though.  Later he would write the great space opera, “OT III” which made him even richer.  He died a hermit, but a damned rich one worth over 200 million.
