  • Cover: The Devil to Pay (1977) • by Bruce Minney
  • Notes:
    • The title is formatted as The Man from Planet X: The Devil to Pay on the front cover, title page, and spine. However, it's clear from page [2] that "The Man from Planet X" is the name of the series and so this was not included in the publication title.
    • Assumed first printing that states "First printing, August 1977 / Printed in the United States of America." There is no number line or other printing number indication.
    • The catalog # is 40-031 on the front cover, 523-40031-9 on the spine, and "ISBN: 0-523-40-031-9" on the copyright page. However, the ISBN check-digit is incorrect. The ISBN should have been 0523400314 / 0-523-40031-4. A search finds that some dealers are using the corrected ISBN and it's believed they have this publication and corrected the ISBN rather than posting a listing for 0-523-400-31-9.
