ACE DOUBLES


ACE DOUBLES
   Ace Doubles were well-known for two reasons: their format - two short novels bound back-to-back - and their titles - to say they were dramatic was an understatement. Terry Carr, who worked for Ace during the sixties, used to say that if the Bible had been reprinted as an Ace Double, the Old Testament would be called "Master of Chaos" and the New Testament would be called "The Man with Three Souls."
