Classic Rock Album Cover Or Book Cover? You Decide!

Illustration for article titled Classic Rock Album Cover Or Book Cover? You Decide!

Some classic rock albums have cover art so trippy, it could be pulp science-fiction book covers. (Like that Queen one.) Can you tell the difference between album covers and pulp book covers? Take our quiz!

So, Mr. Anders ... I think you're not using a valid definition of "pulp SF" here.

_The Number Of The Beast_ isn't pulp SF; pulp ended around 1949-1950, and that was published in 1980. Neither is _The Tar-Aiym Krang_, which appeared in 1972. _The Chronicles of Corum_ isn't even SF; it's fantasy. Most of the other SF novel covers that I recognize are also from 1960-1980, meaning you've got a ten-year gap at least, there.

Pulp is not just "old SF", it's "Old SF from a particular era". Like "screwball comedy", let's not dilute a perfectly valid term by using it to refer to something outside its definition.
