00703-5 L. A. LIVERAKOS The Shadows Between: Poltergeist The Legacy (October 2000; 1st ACE printing; horror)

This is another TV tie-in noveliation. Based upon the television series created by Richard Barton Lewis. I am not quite certain how the title should be listed, especially since the only way I can set it up based on the ACE numbering scheme does not correspond to the title on the cover.

01419-0 CHARLAINE HARRIS Definitely Dead (c.2006; 2007; 1st ACE printing)

Short story collection with works by Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Whitley Strieber, F. Paul Wilson, and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. Foreword by Richard Matheson.

01960 MIRIAM LYNCH The Deadly Rose and Amber Twilight (c.1968; March 1976; 1st ACE printing )

AIL Users - this is s'posed to be an ACE Double in the same format as the single cover, two story edition such as in the later Science Fiction five digit series. In addition, I also have these stories cross-listed as being published in the Belmont Double format (Amber Twilight in B60-066 and The Deadly Rose in B60-068; this one I have).

Yes, found a copy (10 November 2010). Listed as "An ACE Double Gothic" and "Two Complete Gothics." This is the only Gothic Double I have found, but note that it is 'way out of sequence' with the ACE letter-number series.

03 October 2014.  Yes, I have found another ACE Double Gothic with the single cover format (ACE 09245), but placed properly in the ACE letter-number series. If any AIL users have more of these Gothic Doubles, please let me know. Thanks.

09219-5 BARRY SADLER Casca: The Persian #6 (1982, 1st ACE printing; ACE Charter edition)

These volumes are a form of historical fiction, somewhat along the lines of the stories by S. M. Stirling and others. However, it appears to follow the exploits of the "Eternal Mercenary" throughout the past. Not really science fiction, per se. Thus its location in the POTPOURRI section. Another of this series Casca: The Damned is ACE 13580-3 (1982).
