Universal Space Lines. Universal Space Lines was created by N.J. Westwood and appeared in three stories in Thrilling Wonder Stories in 1942 and 1943, beginning with “The Glory of U.S.L.” (Thrilling Wonder Stories, June 1942).
Universal Space Lines is a transportation firm which flies across the solar system, transporting Martian ambassadors, Venusian cigreens, and so on. As is the way, they have to deal with space pirates and such-like. Dude Cardigan, “six feet of lean sartorial splendor,” is the “honey-tongued” press agent for U.S.L., and Harper “Screwtube” Mace is U.S.L.’s chief pilot. They fly the Miss Terra.
