Another novel written by a member of the original Star Trek crew. As with many, these were written in association (either specifically noted on the cover or in the acknowledgements) with another writer. I especially like how they note them on the cover.  Sorry, just a pet peeve about citation of works with regards to whom does what (happens all the time in scientific literature, but is really annoying in literature as it is more difficult to distribute either praise or blame).

00852-6 MARTIN H. GREENBERG (ed.) The Further Adventures of Xena: Warrior Princess (2001; 1st ACE printing; TV tie-in)

Good Grief! Fifteen (15) short stories revolving around this silly television series. And to think some astronomers want to name some of the Kuiper Belt/Oort Cloud objects after these characters. Nevertheless (my ranting aside) - story contributors include Jennifer Roberson, Melissa Good, Diane Duane, Josepha Sherman, and Greg Cox.

01038-5 JOHN MADDOX ROBERTS Hannibal's Children: A Novel of Alternate History (2003; 1st ACE printing)

JOHN MADDOX ROBERTS is the author of the historical mysteries "SPQR" set in the late Roman Republic and early Roman Empire period. This story is an alternate history in which Carthage wins the Punic Wars. Thus its inclusion in the science fiction section, similar to the stories of S. M. Stirling or Harry Turtledove.

01040 LARRY MADDOX (aka JACK JARDINE) Agent of T.E.R.R.A. #1: The Flying Saucer Gambit

01052 JOHN G. HENRY A Just Determination (cover by Michael Herring; 2003; 1st ACE printing)

01065-2 SIMON R. GREEN Something From the Darkside (nd; fantasy/detective)

The Simon Green fantasy detective stories are like a graphic novel, without the artwork. For some reason they are not very satisfying and leave me feeling as if they are missing something necessary.

01066-0 POUL ANDERSON Agent of the Terran Empire (cover by Michael Whelan; January 1980; 1st ACE printing)

01067-9 POUL ANDERSON Agent of the Terran Empire (cover by Michael Whelan; c.1980; 1981; 2nd ACE printing)

01070-9 POUL ANDERSON Agent of the Terran Empire (cover by Michael Whelan; c.1980; 1981; 1982; March 1985; 5th ACE printing)

Book 3: Dominic Flandry saga.  There is a bit of publishing history confusion with this set of titles.  The attribution of ACE printing history is from the volumes, but it does not quite match the publishing history from the number lines on the copyright page.  Looks like ACE Books was doing a 'fine' job of quality control once again.

An "AGE OF CONAN: HYBORIAN LEGENDS" series, appears to be modeled on Howard's Conan universe - but this title is a bit long in the tooth.

01598-0 MOIRA J. MOORE Heroes Adrift (February 2008; 1st ACE printing; ACE fantasy)

ACE Books is getting a bit too Harlequin in its cover art with this series (sorry, I passed over this the first time when I saw it and did not believe it was an ACE volume).

This ACE volume is "based on the DC Universe animated movie from Warner Premiere." Simonson provided the novelization based on a story by Jordan Goldberg (a bit complicated history here). My other notes indicate that this volume (and the animated movie) are a prequel to the Dark Knight big-screen movie.

01794-2 STEVEN R. BOYETT Ariel (cover by Steve Stone; c.1983; August 2009; ACE fantasy)

Steven Boyett's Architects of Sleep was an amazing first book.  Ariel (which is his second book) is pretty good and has been co-opted for the television series "Revolution" - but without the unicorn (screenwriters - argh).  This volume is listed as "includes restored material and an afterword by the author new to this edition."

Note: Ariel has an earlier ACE edition, but in the Letter-Number series 02920-5.  Cover art for these was by Barclay Shaw.

01843-2 AMBER BENSON Cat's Claw (February 2010; 1st ACE printing; ACE fantasy)

Yes, these are out of sequence, but it appears that in 2010, ACE Books (read Penguin Books) was not really paying attention to the letter-number sequence.

01854-3 STEPHEN BAXTER Weaver (cover by Bruce Emmett; April 2010; 1st ACE mass market printing)

This title is Time Tapestry Book Four; An Alternate History Epic.

02295 (back cover)

02320 ALEXEI PANSHIN Masque World (cover by Kelly Freas; 1969; 1st ACE printing)

The 3rd Anthony Villers novel. Note that although this looks like it is out of seqeuence with the ACE numbering scheme and title, ACE Books considers the title of this series to be "Anthony Villiers: Masque World."

02320-7 R. A. LAFFERTY Annals of Klepsis (1983; 1st ACE printing and PBO)

Note the numbering sequence looks odd - but that is what is on the volume.

02359-2 ROBERT ASPRIN Another Fine Myth (cover by Walter Velez; August 1984; ACE fantasy)

Another Fine Myth was originally published by Donning/Starblaze in 1978.

Armageddon 2419 A.D. was originally published as ACE F-188 (1962). This edition is an example of the re-use and renumbering of old stock. This is probably the 2nd ACE printing.

02938 PHILIP FRANCIS NOWLAND Armageddon 2419 A. D (c.1962; August 1974)

These volumes are an example of the ACE editions that reprinted "Science Fiction From The Great Years." Both use the same cover art and seee the reuse of volumes with the block overprint for number and price on ACE 02938.

02939-6 PHILIP FRANCIS NOWLAND Armageddon 2419 A. D (cover by Dean Ellis; c.1962; 1974; August 1978)

03300 JOHN BRUNNER The Atlantic Abomination (cover by Emsh; c.1960; see below)

The Atlantic Abomination was originally published in ACE Double D-465 (1960) bound with David Grinnell's The Martian Missile. This edition uses the same Ed Emshwiller ("Emsh") cover art as found on the ACE Double.

(Thanks to Bill) there might be a way to control the date on this printing.  It appears that ACE Books changed the spine code from a '020' lead-in to '441' in August '69 and ceased printing the small editions in '70.  Thus this volume can be placed into that time interval.

03322 EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS At The Earth's Core (cover by Frank Frazetta; c.1962; March 1974; 4th ACE printing)

03325 EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS At The Earth's Core (c.1962; 1974; nd; art cover similar to movie poster)

Babel-17 was originally published as ACE F-388 (1966). Nebula Award winning novel for 1966 (tied with DANIEL KEYES Flowers For Algernon). This edition uses the same cover art, but the cover text is slightly rearranged from the ACE F-388 edition. This is probably the 2nd ACE printing.  Probably one of my most favourite Delany tales, up there with Nova, Driftglass and Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-Precious Stones (yes, I am a mineralogist).

Oil on board (25.5" x 15.5"), signed in lower left and dated '78.  Note that this ACE letter-number series has two printings (April 1979 and January 1980).
