AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A Rim Worlds story based around the adventures of Derek Calver, The Rim of Space sees Chandler's hero determined to join the Rim Runners in their exploration of desolate planets. He joins the crew of Lorn Lady and sets forth for Mellise, a planet inhabited by intelligent amphibians. He later visits Groller, where the natives have just qualified as humanoids; Stree, with its tea-loving lizards; and Tharn, the home of a pre-industrial civilization.

      Series: y Ace Doubles Ace Books (publisher), New York (City) : Ace Books , 1952-1978 Z1849060 1952 series - publisher novel

      Ace Books began publishing genre fiction in 1952. Initially these were mostly in the tête-bêche (double) format, but they also published a few single volumes in the early years. The tête-bêche format was discarded in 1973, with later doubles being published adjacent to each other. Between 1952 and 1968, the books had a letter-series identifier; and after that date they were given five-digit numeric serial numbers. Ace stopped publishing its doubles series sometime around 1978.

Works about this Work

Australian Science Fiction in the Sixties Sean McMullen , 2013 single work
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 27 no. 1 2013; (p. 73-78)
'McMullen talks about the Australian Science Fiction's origin which goes back to the mid-nineteenth century, mainly in the form of novels. When the genre began to take on a distinct identity in the American pulp magazines of the 1920s and 1930s, Australians were among the contributors, but early in 1940 that all changed. A wartime import ban cut off the supply of American magazines, and almost overnight a local pulp industry sprang lip and continued until the restriction was lifted in 1958. As a result, Australia was largely isolated from American science fiction for nearly two decades, and when the import ban on American magazines was lifted, the few local SF magazines quickly ceased publication. By 1960, Australia had neither specialist SF magazines nor publishers.' (Editor's abstract)
Grimesish Grumberlings : The Death of a Thousand Cuts A. Bertram Chandler , 1981 single work essay
— Appears in: The Mentor , October no. 34 A. Bertram Chandler 2004-;

Chandler writes candidly about the practice of abridging novels, aiming his barbs in the direction of Reader's Digest. He also recalls the time that Ace books exercised a chapter from one of his novels, The Rim of Space, but failed to tell the cover artist. It was subsequently released with a cover depicting action that did not appear in the edition.
