PERRY RHODAN ACE SF SERIES

ACE printed a lot of the popular (well, to some people - I never could quite get interested) PERRY RHODAN novels. Amazingly, I have a lot of these (courtesy of my uncle's collection).

Originally published in Germany on 8 September 1961 as a weekly, which it remains to this day, Perry Rhodan, Peacelord of the Universe, has been one of the most popular space heroes for science fiction fans in Europe. Series and characters were created by Karl-Herbert Scheer and Walter Ernsting. Arthur Moewig Verlag was the name of the German publishing company for Perry Rhodan.

The first ACE edition PERRY RHODAN volumes were published in the ACE five digit numerical series DOUBLES FORMAT in the 1970's, usually in the format of a single cover with both titles listed. They were published (however not exclusively) as ACE SINGLES, also in the 1970's. This often produces confusion (certainly to me), as not only was the five-digit numbering system used but the cover art changed from edition to edition.

If you have any images for volumes not shown in this collection, the ACE IMAGE LIBRARY would appreciate any submissions. Cover artist information is limited for the ACE editions, although GEORGE WILSON and GRAY MORROW have done many covers (original cover art and interior illustration information is included in these entries). Pseudonym ("aka") information for some of the "PR stable of writers" is supplied. If you have additional information concerning these, a particular volume, or if I am wrong in my attribution, please let me know. Thanks!

So, for those of you who have fond memories of this genre (and for those of you have got here by some obscure cross-reference) .

Have Fun!

PR-109 & PR-110 (back cover)

In addition to English, French, and German - the Perry Rhodan series appears to be popular in Japan. The Japanese editions of Perry Rhodan have always been printed in a Double format but the numbering does not correspond to either the German or American issue number system. In addition, many of the German issues (and later the corresponding Japanese issues) were never published by ACE Books. Thankfully, some of the AIL users are more familiar with this series and have contributed their knowledge to allow me to put these issues in some context.

For example, Japanese edition #112 corresponds to German issues #223 and #224. This set of stories comes from a later Perry Rhodan cycle called "The Masters of The Islands" or would be called "Masters of Andromeda" if there were an English version for those issues.

From the ACE SINGLES series

Abbreviations used below (PR-109 = Perry Rhodan #109); five-digit ACE series number in parentheses after PR notation (i.e., PR-032 (66015)). Note that this series is arranged in order of the Perry Rhodan story number and not the ACE five-digit printing schedule (far too bloody complicated and confusing).

In addition, the issue of "Paperback Original" (PBO) and "first printing" (United States or ACE) raises its head with these volumes. Originally printed in digest form in Germany, I am being very conservative with my notation on publication history. For the Perry Rhodan published by ACE, I will indicate printing history where I can find it. Thus, when I notate the volume as PBO - I am indicating that this appears to be an ACE first publication of this story in paperback form. If any users of the ACE IMAGE LIBRARY find a more precise way of defining this, please let me know.


Update Note: An ACE IMAGE LIBRARY USER (Thank you David) has supplied further information concerning some of the early ACE single PERRY RHODAN volumes. The ACE edition of the series for the first five volumes actually were TWO stories under a single cover and title.

Thus, PR-001 Enterprise: Stardust contains "Enterprise: Stardust" by K. H. Scheer and "The Third Power" by Walter Ernsting.

PR-002 The Radiant Dome contains "The Radiant Dome" by K. H. Scheer and "Twilight of the Gods" by Walter Ernsting.

PR-003 Galactic Alarm contains "Galactic Alarm" by Kurt Mahr and "The Mutant Corps" by W. W. Shols.

PR-004 Invasion From Space contains "Invasion From Space" by Walter Ernsting and "Base on Venus" by Kurt Mahr.

PR-005 The Vega Sector contains "Space Battle in the Vega Sector" by K. H. Scheer and "Mutants in Action" by Kurt Mahr.

ACE, for whatever reason, did not credit the authors of the individual stories in these early doubles. This resulted initially in a difference between the American numbering scheme (PR-series) and the German digest number of four (4). This difference increased to five (5) when ACE told FORREST J. ACKERMAN that they did not believe that the "The Wasp Men Attack" would be a story that would sell books. [Indeed, there is a lack of action scenes in the story itself, but it does close out the story in a peaceful manner, something that was quite noticeably different from the standards of SF at the time.] The numbering difference increased to six (6) with the publication of the 5th double.

In addition, ACE skipped the German digest stories between ACE PR-014 and PR-015 and ACE PR-023 and PR-024. The numbering difference between the ACE editions and the German digests would be eight (8) for the remainder of the ACE publication history.

The "lost stories" (skipped initally by ACE) would then be known as the "Special Release volume" put out near the end of the ACE publication run (these were mostly done in the ACE DOUBLES format). The following are those "lost stories" and the approximate numbering location (based upon ACE PR-series numbers).

66098-3 "The Wasp Men Attack" by W. W. Shols would then become 4a.

66099-1 "Menace of Atomigeddon" by Kurt Mahr would become 14a.

66121-1 "Robot Threat: New York" by W. W. Shols would become 23a.

---- And you thought the five digit numerical series numbering scheme by ACE Books was complicated!

Update Note: One of the ACE IMAGE LIBRARY users (who is more familiar with this genre than I am) has supplied information concerning the cover art of the early part of this series. It appears that the first printing of ACE PR volumes 6 to 13 used the original German covers for the series instead of Gray Morrow covers. Gray Morrow cover art was used on the later volumes and second printings. By the third printing all of ACE Perry Rhodan volumes 6 to 13 had been replaced by Gray Morrow covers. The artist on the German covers was Johnny Bruck, who actually produced most of the covers for the first 1800 issues of the series. Sandy Huffaker (artist) did not produce cover art for this series and is only attributed to interior illustrations for the Ace printings. [Thank you David for your contribution]

Now, just for fun - let us look at how many people go into making this series. For PR-010 we have Donald A. Wollheim (editor), Forrest J. Ackerman (managing editor), Wendayne Ackerman (translator), Charles Volpe (art director), and Sandy Huffaker (illustrations for this novel).

FORREST J. ACKERMAN (1916-2008) was a long-time science fiction fan, editor, and agent who was uniquely famous for being a fan and collector. "Forry" received the first Hugo presented, as '#1 Fan Personality' in 1953. In addition, he coined and popularized (alas) the term 'sci-fi' from 1954; edited Famous Monsters of Filmland for 25 years from 1958; popularized the "Perry Rhodan" series in the United States, and was lavishly supportive to generations of fans in both America and Britain.

Update Note: An ACE IMAGE LIBRARY USER (thank you David) points out that In the Center of the Galaxy represents a change in the publication history of the Perry Rhodan universe. When it became clear to the German publishers that they had a hit upon their hands, they decided to branch out the series. There was the series Atlan which followed the adventures of an alien who first appeared in ACE PR-042. They also decided to go after those who liked to sit down and read a good novel. This led to the creation of a paperback-format series that - while its stories took place in the "Perryverse" - did not have to tied into any particular storyline and thus freed them to explore other stories. In The Center of The Galaxy was the 11th novel of this side story series.
