In 1985, Tor published two Keith Laumer novellas in the dos-a-dos format with the "Tor Double" label (The Other Sky/The House in November), but it was not part of the series.[1]

At least one more in the series was prepared but never published: Esther Friesner's Yesterday We Saw Mermaids paired with Lawrence Watt-Evans's The Final Folly of Captain Dancy would have been series number 37.[2]
