Perry Rhodan

Country: US
Total Issues: 117+4+20+20+5+4=170

A series of paperback books, reprinting from the popular German space opera series. The bulk of the volumes contain additional stories and magazine-like features. The first five volumes contained two PR stories each, separately titled but not separately by-lined - the two authors were listed together on the cover as if the stories were collaborations. Each double volume was numbered as one, thus getting instantly out of phase with the German numbering.

Volumes 6 through 108 contained 1 PR novel each, with varying amounts of back-up stories and features. The next 5 volumes reverted to the original format of publishing 2 PRs per book, but this time the stories were separately numbered. The volumes were formatted as if they were two books in one, but the pagination was continuous throughout.

The next three volumes were also doubles, each containing one numbered novel in the Atlan series (a spin-off of PR) and one PR that had been previously skipped and thus could not be assigned a number. These were followed by one double volume with two Atlan novels.

The final book from Ace was a single PR novel. This was reprinted from a different series of the German publications and was longer than the other novels. After Ace dropped the series they were published in pamphlet format, like that of the German originals, and distributed only through the mail. They were issued simultaneously in groups of six.

The next group issued consisted of one PR novel and five novels in a new series, Starman. To ensure that subscribers would buy all six, they were issued as one thick trade paperback, though they were paginated as six separate issues.
