THE BALLANTINE ADULT FANTASY SERIES

Chronological Timeline (includes reprints)

Demon

This listing is very similar to the primary Series list with the exception that the later printings of Series titles are shown, along with "Preface" titles that had the Unicorn's Head displayed in later printings. This listing is not definitive as I don't have all the printings of the "Preface" titles. If anyone has a Unicorn's Head printing that I haven't listed, please let me know so I can update the listing. Thanks!
