A question for AIL users. Note that on the 3rd ACE printing of A. E. Van Vogt's Children of Tomorrow there is a silver butterfly on the cover. Does anyone have other copies with this mark? If so, please let me know (another of those - was this done by ACE or by some distributor?).

Note:  the butterfly mark is probably either a local distributor or dealer.  Here is another ACE 10412-6 image (acquired from Grant Thieseen's NET site; thank you Grant).

11080-0 WILLIAM E. COCHRANE Class Six Climb (1980; 1st ACE printing)

Based upon the work of Robert A. Heinlein Starship Troopers, but I do not know if the rights to the franchise were acquired. This is one of the RPG ('role playing game') novels that have become more abundant (I will not indicate that they are popular - at least to me - I just could not get myself to read this yet) in the last 30 years. Listed under heading "Combat Command," and an encircled number (#2) indicating a series. MARK ACRES also writes in a fantasy genre (Runesword). I would also like to know if this is a pseudonym.

Based upon the work of Keith Laumer's Star Colony. This is one of the RPG ('role playing game') novels and has interior illustrations. I do not know if the rights to the franchise were acquired, but it is listed under heading "Combat Command," and an encircled number (#13) indicating a series.

11681-7 SPRAGUE de CAMP and LIN CARTER Conan of the Isles (Conan #12; different cover by Boris Vallejo; nd)

Once again, ACE Books makes cataloguing a difficult activity. It appears that this edition (Conan #12) uses the same letter-number but has different cover art as well as a very interesting front cover blurb:

"This edition authorized by Conan Properties, Inc., the representatives of all Conan authors." Hmmmm - look like some publishing scandal. If any of the AIL users who are Conan fans can let me know, this might be something I need to annotate.

11682-5 L. SPRAGUE de CAMP and LIN CARTER Conan of Aquilonia (Conan #11; nd)

11693-0 STAN LEE Conan: The Barbarian, Vol. 2 (~1978)

11694-9 STAN LEE Conan: The Barbarian, Vol. 3 (1978)

OK - a mash-up. Marvel Comics and ACE Books join together to reprint early Conan stories (and the comic artwork) by Roy Thomas and Barry (Winsor) Smith. This edition has three (3) stories (and associated art). Note that I am leaving Stan Lee as 'author' as he should get credit for everything Marvel Comics has done! I will see if I can sort out this series and find out who really edited this mash-up.

11695-7 ROY THOMAS and BARRY SMITH Conan: The Barbarian, Vol. 4 (1978)

Includes Beware the Wrath of Anu! and Rogues in the House. Note that Thomas and Smith are detailed as 'authors' and Stan Lee's name is missing (argh).

11759-7 H. BEAM PIPER The Cosmic Computer (original title: Junkyard Planet; cover by Michael Whelan; c.1963; 1964; 1977; September 1983; 4th ACE printing)

The Cosmic Computer was originally published as ACE F-274 (1964) and is one of the three most influential of the H. Beam Piper stories I read as a child.  Junkyard Planet (aka The Cosmic Computer) was published by Putnam in 1963.  With the change of name, I have indicated only the ACE publication history.

11773-2 WILLIAM GIBSON Count Zero (cover by Richard Berry; c.1986; April 1987; 1st ACE printing)

Although Neuromancer lofted Gibson to the top of the cyberpunk authors, I have always recommended Count Zero (the second book of the "Sprawl" series) as the best example of 'cyberpunk' genre writing by him.

The Conan volumes compiled and edited by de Camp are crammed full of stuff. This volume is no exception. Pages 6 and 7 contain a map of the Hyborian Age world of Conan, based upon notes and sketches by Robert E. Howard and upon previous maps by P. Schulyer Miller, John D. Clark, David Kyle, and L. Spraque de Camp.

This edition contains an Introduction (by de Camp which details the writing and rewriting history) and five (5) short stories including Hawks Over Shem and The Road of Eagles (both by Howard and de Camp) and Black Colossus, Shadows in the Moonlight, and A Witch Shall Be Born (Howard).

11880-1 PIERS ANTHONY Chton (cover by John Jude Palencar; March 1987; 1st ACE printing)

An interesting variant of ACE Books publication was brought to my attention (Thank Bill). The 2nd ACE printing of Chton (with the same Palencar cover art) was published in 1988 (April). However, it was given away free to anyone who bought the HC edition of Robot Adept. Except for the printing statement/line on the copyright page, the ACE logo does not appear on the book, nor is there a letter-number assignment on the cover.

This volume reuses the same Freas cover art (including the notation "first book publication" and the interior illustration by Jack Gaughan) and represents the re-use of old stock with new letter-number designation. Probably 2nd ACE printing.

Cover for ACE 16702 (and following editions) is probably by J. H. Breslow [the Nebula seal covers the initials JHB].
