  • Note: General information and history:
    • Bastei Lübbe is a part of Lübbe Verlagsgruppe (Lübbe Publishing Group).
    • The initial parent house was Gustav Lübbe Verlag GmbH, which was situated for a long time in Bergisch-Gladbach (near Cologne), Germany.
    • This publisher was originally founded 1949 in Cologne by Ilse Tomin as 'Bastei-Verlag' and purchased in 1953 by Gustav & Ursula Lübbe.
    • Since 2009 it is located again in Cologne, Germany.
    Lifespan of Bastei Lübbe's publication series: Several of Bastei Lübbe's publication series were published in a limited range of years. The following list has been compiled by searching Deutsche Nationalbibliotek for the latest publication in each of the series. It is assumed that the data at Deutsche Nationalbibliotek regarding these series are correct for the later publications in a series (earlier publication records may not contain any series information) and that latest publication listed there defines the approximate end of the series' lifespan. All the paperback series can be viewed as subseries or part of Bastei Lübbe Taschenbuch, but we try to capture the respective series, of which many are devoted entirely to speculative fiction. Bastei Lübbe sometimes used publication numbers after a series' lifespan had already ended which, according to the series' numbering scheme, look like they should belong to that series. However, such a publication very likely doesn't belong to that series.
    • Bastei Lübbe Science Fiction Abenteuer: Published approx. until 1996.
    • Bastei Lübbe Science Fiction Action: Published approx. until 1985.
    • Bastei Lübbe Science Fiction Bestseller: Published approx. until 1988.
    • Bastei Lübbe Science Fiction Special: Published approx. until 1996.
    • Bastei Lübbe Fantasy: Published approx. until 2005.
    Since ca. 2006 the collective denomination used here for all science fiction & fantasy titles published in the no. range 20XXX - 24XXX is Bastei Lübbe Science Fiction & Fantasy: both genres were published in this whole range.
