Ace D-Series Double Science Fiction Novel #D-381:
'One Against Herculum' by Jerry Sohl
backed by
'Secret of the Lost Race' by Andre Norton

Cover Price: $.35

'He licensed the right to kill' - 'Herculum
'The man a whole galaxy hated' - 'Lost Race'

Item Notes:
This member of the highly collectible Ace Sci Fi D-Series of double novels ('dos-a-dos') is in the 'shorty', or pocket format popular with pulps of the day.
It is an Ace Double that is referred to by some collectors as a type 1 double.


Other Works by these Authors:
Jerry Sohl - 'The Mars Monopoly', Ace D-162
'The Transcendent Man' - Bantam Books, 1959; also wrote episodes of Star Trek, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Outer Limits

Condition:
Our rating for this highly desirable original double D-Series Ace Sci Fi novel:
'Millenium Falcon'
(See our FAQ for a description of our unique Sci Fi rating system.)
Generally tight and square. Minimal to no chipping on edges. 'Herculum' cover has minor reading crease. 'Lost Race' has a 1/2 inch crack on edge and a visible crease that runs the length from top to bottom about 1 inch from edge. Spine has one minor crease. This is certainly a collectible piece and offers a really affordable way to own cover art from both Emsh and Valigursky, not to mention it is a fine example of late 1950's sci fi as a member of Ace's earliest (and many think, best quality) of double novels.
Enjoy!
