Ace D444 – DESIRE ISLAND – Shepard Rifkin, 1960. Thanks to Ruben at paperbackart.com, the king of Ziel cover hunters, who continues to search for, and find, more Ziels.

Probably Ziel, based largely on the couple at center. The woman at top is not the “usual” Ziel model, so this might be a different artist.

54000 MOON OF THE WOLF – Whitten, 1968. 9
34425  HOUSE OF ILLUSION – Devon, 1969 (The reason why Ace’s 5-digit books don’t follow numerical sequence is because with only a few exceptions they assigned numbers in alphabetical order based on the book title, not in any numerical order. So all “A” & “B” titles start with a 0, and so on until all “Y” & “Z” titles start with a 9. ) 0

02295 ANITA – Roberts, 1970. 7
46898 THE LADY OF LYON HOUSE – Marlow, 1970. Very hard to verify the artist with so many similar Gothics, but this one has several touches that are reminiscent of other work by Ziel. A definite possibility. 6
