The ACE Doubles (and Singles): Image Library
The ACE Double had a 21 year life span and went through
several unique numbering systems. In addition, the ACE Letter-Number
system included single titles (either short novella length stories or
longer, often abridged, stories that had originally been published in
hardback or serialized in magazines) as well as the tÍte-bÍche
(inverted back-to-back) ACE Double volumes. The genres published by
ACE Books ranged from Science Fiction to Mystery to Western
to a diverse set of publications that I have combined under the
all-encompassing category Potpourri.
In these pages I have tried to supply information on the publication
history. I use the term "PBO" to indicate a volume that
appeared as a paperback volume without a prior edition (usually in
hardback). I use the term "1st ACE printing" to indicate
that this is the first time it was published by ACE Books. This also means
that there is probably a prior edition in either paperback or hardback
(which I will try and indicate if known).
The following set of links will take you to the image libraries I have
compiled at this time. Please note that these are continually under
construction. Any corrections or supplemental information should be send
to my e-ddress in the link above.
OTHER ACE PUBLICATIONS
I am always looking for cleaner images for this collection as well as
any odd-number SF Doubles (for example see D-121) as well as Western,
Mystery, and Potpourri covers. If you have further
information or images, please contact me at
IronWolf Engine Works.
If you would like to use images
from these pages, please contact me. Thanks.
The ACE IMAGE LIBRARY is over 15 years old (August 1997; bloody
amazing - at least to me). Thank you to all of the AIL users who have
contributed to making this database a primary source for information on
the ACE Books publications.
