Collectors’ Editions of THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING & THE LAST UNICORN (Press Release)

Ace and Roc has re-published two beloved fantasy classics in new trade paperback editions: THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING by T.H. White (Ace; $25.00) and THE LAST UNICORN by Peter S. Beagle (Roc; $16.00). 
Neither the books nor the authors need any introduction and you’ve probably read them many times.  But that is the beauty of these novels. They are timeless and meant to be shared between generations of readers.  A perfect gift for the Holiday season, whether you are introducing a new fan to the books or upgrading a well-worn previous edition. 
THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING has been called White’s masterpiece and has served as the basis for several other forms of popular entertainment like Disney’s The Sword in the Stone animated film and the Broadway stage production of Camelot. It is a poignant story of adventure, romance and magic that has enchanted readers since its debut in 1958.
THE LAST UNICORN has been a fan favorite since it was first published in 1968.  It was made into an animated film (Beagle wrote the screenplay) of the same name in 1982 which was recently reissued for the 25th anniversary.  In 2010, IDW Publishing launched a series of comic books based on the novel which was recently collected into graphic novel format.  THE LAST UNICORN tells the story of a unicorn who, alone in her wood, comes to fear that she is the last of her kind and sets out on an adventure to learn the truth.  Along the way she meets several people—a magician, a traveler, an evil King—who each help her in their own ways.
