Status of pages:
The ACE SF Doubles are mostly completed (but I am missing a few images - keep your eyes open for them - especially in the 5 digit numerical series of the late 1970's).
The ACE Double Mystery and Western sections are continually being added to, so take a look.
The ACE Singles image library (for science fiction, mystery and western genres) is now on-line.
Pages for the ACE publication of the Perry Rhodan science fiction genre as well as the spin-off ACE novels for the Man From U.N.C.L.E. television show are now available. I am looking for good images of the Prisoner series - I have the first three published by ACE, but there are others I do not have access to at this time.
I have also updated the LINKS page as well as two new pages that deal with the "Nick Carter" adventure series and the publication history of "other" double-format paperbacks similar to the ACE Doubles. At this time I have incorporated the TOR, BELMONT, and SIGNET Double format volumes, as well as MAGABOOK and a couple of odd-balls. I am always looking for additional images and information on these publications - so drop me an email if you have further information or images.
Finally, a new series of pages have been developed to START to address the other ACE publications. These Potpourri pages cover the historical, political, tawdry and obscure stories and tales published as ACE singles. Please take a look at the links for these pages.
