New Arrivals, Thanks Jan

As mentioned in my Site introduction the collection that forms
the basis for this blog consists of my own collection and that
of a friend who is downsizing her books. A few weeks ago she
mentioned she had found additional titles, today she dropped 
them off. Wow, what can I say, these are lovely, they will be 
real highlights in the collection.

Thanks Jan.

Daybreak-2250 A.D., ACE Books, 1952 (13989)
This was the first Norton book I discussed, under
the title Star Man's Son. This cover illustration is
similar to the original ACE cover, I would say
the depiction of Lura is better here, but Fors does
not look like a teenager. Both covers are uncredited.

A collaboration continuing the adventures 
of the Solar Queen.

  1. Nice! And I didn't realize that Mike Ford had done a Witch World map!

  2. Hi

    Yes three pages of maps follow the table of contents which is a nice touch. Thanks for stopping by.


  3. I believe that the "Daybreak-2250 A.D." cover is by Gino D'Achille.


  4. Thanks for the information. Sorry it took so long to acknowledge your comment.
