Two items. Ace #77793-7. Originally published as a Gold Medal paperback original in 1961 under the title ROCKABILLY, and later reissued as a Pyramid paperback in 1975 with textul revisions and new author's note, this new July 1982 Ace edition follows the Pyramid text (with the author's note). However this Ace edition was suppressed immediately after publication due to a dispute between the author and publisher over the back cover photo (meant to be colour bur printed as black and white). Also this edition states ''Ace Science Fiction'' on the spine, and this was changed for all subsequent editions to read simply ''Fiction''. This 1982 Ace edition is being sold together with the correct 1983 Ace edition (Ace #77795-3) which has both the colour photograph on the back cover and the correct (''Fiction'') wording on the bottom of the spine. Also incidentally the cover artist (Barclay Shaw) is credited on the 1983 paperback (he was not credited on the 1982 printing).
