ACE Double Mystery Series
The primary reference for the ACE Doubles Mystery genre is:
Copies of the library press edition (hardcover; in the
style of the PermaBond covers) used to be available from Barnes and
Noble.com. However, Sheldon Jaffery (now deceased) had contacted me and
informed me that there is a paperback edition as well. I have seen copies
of the paperback edition being sold on EBAY, however the prices they have
been getting are a BIT more than the price of a hardcover library edition.
Guess it just boils down to "Caveat Emptor."
Another interesting and useful reference for the ACE
mystery collector or the pulp mystery enthusiast. Hardboiled
America, The Lurid Years of Paperbacks by Geoffrey O'Brien.
Published by Van Nostrand Reinhold Company, New York. 1981. 144pp.
Paperback. Illustrated with some color cover images. Essentially a
checklist for the "hardboiled" mystery genre for the time period from 1929
In addition to the Man From U.N.C.L.E.
spy/mystery spoofs, I have also placed the Nick
Carter mystery-thriller ACE volumes in a separate page.
