FATE Magazine

I love vintage cover art of all genres. UFOs, sci-fi, and monster stuff no exception. As with all genres, women sexily displayed, usually in distress - or its opposite, the woman as cruel, evil dominatrix type -- a standard image. FATE in its early days was no exception. Here are some vintage FATE magazine covers depicting females as victims of monsters, flying saucers and aliens.

FATE magazine has been around since 1948 and is still going. I’ve been a fan for years. Everything about it is perfect; from the small size to the cover art.

This reminds me a little of Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch; that famous scene where she's standing over the grate. Maybe they had that in mind. The woman here looks a lot more breezy and carefree than possessed.

This is like a romance novel. Passion and the Paranormal!

Pin-op girls of the Nile!

Exotic stirrings among the anomalous. (that's anomalous, not amorous.)
