Zebra Books - Overview - 1974-1982

Zebra Books

Zebra books is an imprint of Kensington Publishing Corp, active from 1974 to today. It was infamous for it's line of horror books in the late 80s, and now seems to almost exclusively publish romance.

They began with the ISBN prefix 0-8468- for the first 35 titles before switching to 0-89083-. That prefix got filled up by 1982, at which point they switched to 0-8217-.

Zebra published a variety of genre titles in the 70s, such as fantasy, sleazy tell-alls, the unexplained, etc.  By the later 70s they settled into Western and Romance, a trend I've seen with other publishers.
