The Invasion side up

The Tete-Beche format returns in THE INVASION / THE VALLEY - two pulp adventure novels, one Sci-Fi Horror, one Lost World, both Amazon Bestsellers in their Kindle format.

Two short novels, 384 pages.

One of my earliest forays on my own into a second-hand bookstore, sometime around 1968 I guess, resulted in me finding an ACE double, a book you read both ways up, one short novel each way. The 1st one I got had John Brunner one way and Samuel Delaney the other -- my first introduction to two writers who are still among my favorites. Over my teenage years the ACE double series introduced me to many other writers, people like Jack Vance, H Beam Piper, Fritz Lieber and a youngster who went by Dean R Koontz. I have a lot of reading to thank them for.

That's one of the reasons it gives me great delight to see two of my novels appear in the same format via FLIPIT, a new imprint from Generation Next Publications.

In their Kindle format on THE INVASION reached #2 in the Sci-Fi chart, #4 in Horror and #1 in Occult and THE VALLEY hit #1 in Historical Fantasy.
