Ballantine Adult Fantasy

Dedicated to the iconic and fascinating series of novels released between 1969 and 1974 thanks to publishers Ian and Betty Ballantine and editor Lin Carter. Without whom a great deal of excellent fantasy might have been forgotten.

There are quite a few collectors of these out there, so I thought a group might be in order.
