I've previously read that more than a few of the Ace Doubles that say Complete and Unabridged on the cover were in fact far from being complete and unabridged and some authors spoke up about this issue.

    There were different colors according to genre — westerns green, mysteries yellow, sci-fi in both red and blue, etc. — and different styles of the ACE logo within each according to age and other parameters. To be up-to-date on the specifics of the line, this is a great resource, though its focus is largely on the mystery portion:

    Hmm, not to me, but I do have the Suntup edition. If I didn't have that, then I'd probably have bought the Folio edition. I think they could have done more with it. The style of the book is very much in line with what they did for The Shining - too much so, in my opinion. The writing on the inside of the cover boards was a great idea for The Shining, but I don't think it has any relevance here.

    For $90, it's not bad. If you don't want to spend whatever the Suntup edition costs these days, then this is your best option.
    Thanks, the Suntup is out of price range so I guess I'll get this and their The Road together.
