Various: Astounding Stories of Super-Science Feb 1930 v1, 30 Apr 2009

The complete Feb 1930 issue of Astounding Stories of Super-Science, complete with illustrations and advertisements.

Contents:

Quote:
OLD CROMPTON'S SECRET
HARL VINCENT
Tom's Extraordinary Machine Glowed-and the Years Were Banished from Old Crompton's Body. But There Still Remained, Deep-seated in His Century-old Mind, the Memory of His Crime.

SPAWN OF THE STARS
CHARLES WILLARD DIFFIN
The Earth Lay Powerless Beneath Those Loathsome, Yellowish Monsters That, Sheathed in Cometlike Globes, Sprang from the Skies to Annihilate Man and Reduce His Cities to Ashes.

THE CORPSE ON THE GRATING
HUGH B. CAVE
In the Gloomy Depths of the Old Warehouse Dale Saw a Thing That Drew a Scream of Horror to His Dry Lips. It Was a Corpse-the Mold of Decay on Its Long-dead Features-and Yet It Was Alive!

CREATURES OF THE LIGHT
SOPHIE WENZEL ELLIS
He Had Striven to Perfect the Faultless Man of the Future, and Had Succeeded-Too Well. For in the Pitilessly Cold Eyes of Adam, His Super-human Creation, Dr. Mundson Saw Only Contempt-and Annihilation-for the Human Race.

INTO SPACE
STERNER ST. PAUL
What Was the Extraordinary Connection Between Dr. Livermore's Sudden Disappearance and the Coming of a New Satellite to the Earth?

THE BEETLE HORDE
VICTOR ROUSSEAU
Bullets, Shrapnel, Shell-Nothing Can Stop the Trillions of Famished, Man-sized Beetles Which, Led by a Madman, Sweep Down Over the Human Race.

MAD MUSIC
ANTHONY PELCHER
The Sixty Stories of the Perfectly Constructed Colossus Building Had Mysteriously Crashed! What Was the Connection Between This Catastrophe and the Weird Strains of the Mad Musician's Violin?

THE THIEF OF TIME
CAPTAIN S. P. MEEK
Perhaps the most fascinating portion of the eMagazine is the fully illustrated 1930 advertisements at the end of the stories!

Advertisements include:

Quote:
Only 28 years old and earning $15,000 a year!

Amazingly Easy Way to Get Into ELECTRICITY!

BIG MONEY IN POULTRY!

BE A RAILWAY TRAFFIC INSPECTOR - EARN UP TO $250 Per Month Expenses Paid

FRENCH LOVE DROPS!

TRAIN FOR AVIATION AT HOME!

NEW SCIENTIFIC WONDER "X-RAY" CURIO - "BOYS You apparently see thru Clothes.."

Get Strong QUICKLY - Giant Chest Expander

Learn How to BOX!

Play the Hawaiian Guitar like the Hawaiians!

LEARN TO Mount Birds!

CORRECT Your NOSE!

Change to OLD GOLD in kindness to your THROAT (cigarette ad)
...and much much more!

Thanks for this. I think the ads are just as great as the stories

As an example.... "FRENCH LOVE DROPS
An enchanting exotic perfume of irresistible charm, clinging for hours like lovers loath to part. Just a few drops are enough. Full size bottle 98¢ prepaid or $1.39 C.O.D. plus postage. Directions with every order. FREE: 1 full size bottle if you order 2 vials."
