Book Giveaway: Ace Double F-143

I’m giving away an Ace Double, F-143, A Stone Around Her Neck by Bob McKnight / End of a Big Wheel by Clayton Fox. It was published in 1962 and both titles were originals to this edition.

The only catch, or maybe requirement, is to do one of two things:

1. Like Gravetapping’s Facebook page [Click Here]; and / or

2. Subscribe to Gravetapping’s posts [see “Subscribe to Gravetapping” in the right column].

If you do both, your name will be entered in the contest twice, which effectively doubles your chances to win. I have no way to determine who likes Gravetapping’s Facebook page, or follows its blog posts and so there is an element of an “honor contest,” which means you will also need to send an email to, with “Ace Double Contest” in the subject, and your name and mailing address in the body of the email. If you both like the Facebook page, and follow the blog posts include “2” in the email’s subject line.  

The contest is open until 11:59 PM, Mountain Daylight, Sunday May 15, 2016.

Unfortunately, since international shipping rates are quite high, the contest is limited to United States mailing addresses.

Hey, I subscribed. I collect the ACE Doubles, and I don't have this one. I think I have one or two issues for trade also.

Thanks Tom. You're officially in the giveaway. I haven't done much trading, but I do have a few Ace Doubles that I have more than one copy and would be interested in Brian Garfield's early pulp westerns, and, this is probably an odd author to want, but any Wildcat O'Shea books as by Jeff Clinton (Jack Bickham).

I'll look to see what Doubles I have available.

Tom Johnson, there are 9 copies on if you don't win the drawing.

The only ACE Mystery I can find right now is ACE MYSTERY DOUBLE G-543: A Giant Double featuring two mysteries by Mildred Davis. THEY BURRIED A MAN and THE DARK PLACE. Here are the flip side covers. I’m hoping to trade this for an ACE MYSTERY DOUBLE that I don’t have. I have a bunch of duplicate ACE SF Doubles. I'll have to check my ACE Western Doubles, but I know I don't have very many - some, though.
