This is one of the ACE Science Fiction Specials (3rd. Series), edited by Terry Carr. This is also Lucius Shepard's first novel.

As is usual for ACE Books, there is a 2nd ACE printing of Green Eyes with the same Letter-Number series (argh).  This volume has different cover art and no printing history.

30295-5 CHARLES de LINT Greenmantle (1988)

30295-5 (back cover)

30301 FRITZ LEIBER The Green Millennium (c.1969; nd)

30590 LOUIS and JACQUELYN TRIMBLE Guardians of the Gate (cover by Harry Borgman; January 1972; first thus)

Note: this is the only Louis Trimble story that I have ever found that has his wife as a co-author.  Jacquelyn Trimble has another ACE volume - as J. L. H. Whitney The Whisper of Shadow (this is an ACE Gothic genre story).

30600 EDWIN L. ARNOLD Gulliver of Mars (original title: Lieut. Gulliver Jones; cover and frontis drawing by Frank Frazetta; c.1905; 1964; listed as "complete and unabridged")

Gulliver of Mars was originally published as ACE F-296 (1964). This edition has the same collophon with "ACE Science Fiction Classic" and uses the same cover art by Frank Frazetta as on ACE F-296. All of these criteria suggests another example of a volume that is renumbered old stock.

30873-2 BYRON PREISS Guts: An Illustrated Novel (1979; 1st thus)

Illustrations by Gray Morrow and Michael Golden.


31590 LEIGH BRACKETT The Halfling and Other Stories (September 1973; 1st ACE printing)

Story story collection (seven stories)

LEIGH DOUGLAS BRACKETT (b. 1915; d. 1978) was one of the earliest of the women science fiction (and fantasy) writers. Her first published science fiction story, Martian Quest, appeared in Astounding in 1940. She was a prolific writer in the genres of science fiction (her most recognized story is probably The Long Tomorrow, c. 1955), mystery, and western as well as television and movie scripts ("The Big Sleep" - 1946 and "Rio Bravo" - 1958).

31627-1 L. SPRAGUE de CAMP The Hand of Zei (cover by Paul Alexander; c.1963; August 1982)

The Hand of Zei was originally published in ACE Double F-249 (1963) bound with The Search for Zei. Also note that the ACE F-249 version was listed as "abridged by the author" and I am uncertain whether this edition is an "abridged" or "complete" version.

Update (19 February 2013): It appears that this is the 1st ACE paperback edition of the 1981 Owlswick hardcover edition.  The two (2) ACE Double (F-249) stories were combined into one volume and published as such under one title.  This ACE edition was later reprinted under the same Letter-Number (with same cover and price) in May 1983.

31750-2 JOHN MYERS MYERS The Harp and the Blade (cover by James Warhola; February 1985; 1st ACE printing; ACE fantasy)

31846-0 MICHAEL MOORCOCK The Sword of the Dawn (1990; 1st ACE printing; ACE fantasy)

Book Three of the Runestaff Series.

31847 MICHAEL MOORCOCK The Jewel In The Skull (1990; 1st ACE printing; ACE fantasy)

These Michael Moorcock fantasies are seriously out of ACE letter-number sequencing.

31986 DAVID DRAKE Hammer's Slammers (Introduction by Jerry Pournelle; nd)

32802-4 DANIEL R. KERNS Hero (cover by Cliff Miller; October 1993; 1st ACE printing)

34245 FRED SABERHAGEN The Holmes-Dracula File (1978; 1st ACE printing)

37072-1 MICHAEL SWANWICK In The Drift (cover by Ron Lieberman; February 1987; 2nd ACE printing)

This title is in-sequence with the ACE 5-digit series. However, the 1st ACE printing (for some reason) is seriously out-of-sequence. See ACE 35861-1 (1985). Uses the same Lieberman cover art as ACE 35861-1.

37077-2 GORDON R. DICKSON In Iron Years (cover by Stephen Hickman; 1981; listed as "first paperback publication")

37081-0 DAVID J. SCHOW and JEFFREY FRENTZEN The Outer Limits: The Official Companion (1986; 1st ACE printing; TV tie-in)

"The definitive work on TV's science fiction powerhouse." This TV tie-in volume is seriously out of sequence (hmmmm - somewhat "Outer Limits") in its letter-number attribution.

37090-X MARK ADLARD Interface (cover by Paul Alexander; August 1977; 1st ACE printing and PBO)

37092-6 URSULA K. LE GUIN and VIRGINIA KIDD (eds.) Interfaces (cover by Alex Abel; February1980; 1st ACE printing; oversized trade paperback)

37093-4 URSULA K. LE GUIN and VIRGINIA KIDD (eds.) Interfaces (cover by Alex Abel; October 1980; listed as "first mass market edition")

Although both of these editions use the same cover art, note that the placement of the editor names as well as the ACE letter-number series is different in both, even though they are marked as published in 1980.

Listed as "an anthology of speculative fiction."

37206-6 (back cover)

This is Bruce Sterling's first novel.  In many ways, an oddly twisted takeoff on "Moby Dick."

37217 COLIN KAPP The Ion War (cover by Ken Barr; October 1978; 1st ACE printing)

37290 ANDRE NORTON Iron Cage (wrap-around cover by Charles Mikolaycak; c.1974; 1976; listed as "first paperback publication")

The first edition of Iron Cage was published in hardback by Viking in 1974.

37291-0 ANDRE NORTON Iron Cage (cover by Charles Mikolaycak; c.1974; 1976; nd)

Although this edition is listed as "first paperback publication," please note the change in ACE logo on the cover. Thus this is reprint using the same cover art as on ACE 37290.

37363-1 ANDREW J. OFFUTT The Iron Lords (c.1984; nd; ACE fantasy)

37364-X ANDREW J. OFFUTT The Iron Lords (November 1984; 1st ACE printing; ACE fantasy)

Volume One of War of the Gods on Earth series.

37365 ROBERT E. HOWARD The Iron Man and The Adventures of Dennis Dorgan (1983; 1st thus)

Not certain that this would be considered an ACE Double, per se.

37367-4 JACK McDEVITT The Hercules Text (cover by Earl Keleny; 1986; 1st ACE printing and PBO)

This is one of the new ACE Science Fiction Specials (3rd. Series), edited by Terry Carr. This is also Jack McDevitt's first novel.

37384-4 ARTHUR BRYON COVER Isaac Asimov's Robot City: Book 4: Prodigy (cover and interior illustrations by Paul Rivoche; January 1988; 1st ACE printing)

I am uncertain how this fits into the Asimov storyline of The Caves of Steel and other stories. I am also not certain about the authorization of this story line. If any AIL user is more familiar with this specific genre, please drop me an e-gram. Thanks.

37387-9 DEE MORRISON MEANEY Iseult: Dreams That Are Done (cover by Thomas Canty; 1985; 1st ACE printing and PBO; ACE Fantasy)

37421-2 JOSEPH SILVA (aka RON GOULART) The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977; movie tie-in volume with photo covers and photo inserts; 1st thus)

Wells science fiction novel. Stars Burt Lancaster, Michael York, Barbara Carrera, and Richard Basehart and filmed in Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Lancaster perfectly matches Wells' description of Moreau's physical appearance, unlike the other two actors to play the role on screen, Charles Laughton in Island of Lost Souls (1933) and Marlon Brando in The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996).

Sixteen pages of black and white photos from the movie.

This volume is also listed in the ACE POTPOURRI section.

38287 JERRY POURNELLE The Janissaries (cover by Enric and interior illustrations by Bermejo; June 1979; 1st ACE printing; ACE illustrated oversize edition)

38287-8 JERRY POURNELLE The Janissaries (cover by Enric and interior illustrations by Bermejo; c.1979; March 1980; 2nd ACE printing)

Note the differences between these similar ACE letter-number series editions, especially the 'massively illustrated' blurb.  The other observation is that the artist name is listed as "Enrich" on the copyright page, but should be "Enric."

38288-6 JERRY POURNELLE The Janissaries (cover by Enric and interior illustrations by Bermejo; c.1979; 1980; nd; 3rd ACE printing; ACE illustrated oversize edition)
