The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction – September, 1955 (Frank Kelly Freas) [Featuring “Operation Afreet”, by Poul Anderson]

Unlike the majority of science fiction (and fantasy) magazines of the 40s and 50s, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction eschewed interior art.  The issue of September, 1955 was an exception to this policy, featuring two illustrations – below – by Frank Kelly Freas, which accompanied Poul Anderson’s tale “Operation Afreet”. 

The third illustration is an allegorical image created by the unknown artist “H.M.”
