The Best Of The Worst
When Harold Hersey sold his pulps to A.A. Wyn, they dropped the swastika emblem for the ace of spades. I don’t think this was political: although the Nazis had adopted the swastika (flipped from the one seen here) in 1920, it didn’t really have a negative connotation until the 1930s.
“The Symbol of Good Reading – A Hersey Company” ??
Wow, what a bummer for THAT company’s logo.
