Bibliographic notes for the publisher Futura which was a paperback imprint of MacDonald and Co.

Futura in ISFDB:

Many Orbit paperbacks will state that they're published by Futura, but I'm currently converting some of my verified pubs from Futura to Orbit as the Orbit imprint looks more useful in identifying original SF as opposed to Novelisations, for instance: e.g. This is a Futura Novelisation but this is an Orbit original novel. There are oddities like this Orbit "Quantum SF" book but I'll get round to "publication series" like those later. BLongley 21:00, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

In the meantime, just zoom in on those pictures to see (some of) the cover logos I'm using to distinguish such: note that I think Orbit and Futura can mostly be separated from Cover scans showing the logos, whereas Panther/Grafton/Granada/Triad etc probably need inspection of the imprints on the Spine.
