ACE POTPOURRI

LITERATURE - OF A SORT


ACE SINGLE format N-SERIES

The N-series is a bit difficult to classify. There is one N-series Science Fiction volume (Frank Herbert's Dune) but the majority range from biographic pieces (Edgar Rice Burroughs) to science fact essays by Isaac Asimov. Thus, several of these have been placed in other genre pages for completeness.

Do any of the ACE IMAGE LIBRARY users have any information on the publication history of this series? Let me know. Thank you.

N-1 anonymous Retrospect 1964 - U.P.I. Photographic Review of 1963 (1964; 1st ACE printing; photo cover)

Summaries and captions from special U.P.I dispatches (from the cover).

N-2 anonymous Retrospect 1965 - U.P.I. Pictorial History of 1964 (1965; 1st ACE printing; photo cover)

The Retrospective volumes contain more than 1,000 pictures (from United Press International photographic files) to provide a photographic montage of the events and personalities in the year evaluated. Note that these are also listed on the ACE logo as "Special."

A series of speculative essays written for the general public on "Time Travel," "The Future," Flying Saucers," "L.S.D./Life on Other Worlds," and others. Since these are both related to science fiction as well as other topics, I have included this listing in the ACE SF Singles (N letter-number) section.

Vietnam War and the conflict in Southeast Asia.

This volume is an ERB biography that focuses upon the characters, stories, and venues of his writings. Illustrated. As it is biographical material I have also included this in the ACE SF Singles (N letter-number) section.
