ACE POTPOURRI

LITERATURE - OF A SORT


ACE SINGLE format A-SERIES

The A letter-number series of ACE paperbacks were published from 1967 to 1968 and priced at 75. There are 30 numbers in this series. However, there is one oddball volume - ACE number A-130 is actually part of the K letter-number series and bears the A prefix because it was priced at 75. The Science Fiction genre A letter-number series are located on the A-SINGLES SF page.
