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.
