Many images of paperback cover of Ace magazines.

Ace Books began publishing in 1952 under the guidance of A.A. Wyn and Donald A. Wolheim. Wyn owned a pulp magazine empire that included Secret Agent X, Ace Sports, Western Aces, and many others. Some of his most popular magazines included Ten Detective Aces and Ten Story Love, and this concept of cramming multiple stories into a single publication may have been what prompted the “Double Novel” concept that became so prevalent at Ace books.
