An Ace Double containing The Door Through Space by Marion Zimmer Bradley, bound with Rendezvous on a Lost World by A. Bertram Chandler. The first edition was 1961 (F-117 / short format); it was reprinted in 1972 (tall format) - both times as an Ace Double.
The Door Through Space by Marion Zimmer Bradley (115 pages; cover by Enrich.) At one time Race Cargill had been the best Terran Intelligence agent on the complex and mysterious planet of Wolf. He had repeatedly imperiled his life amongst the half-human and non-human creatures of the sullen world. And he had repeatedly accomplished the fantastic missions until his name was emblazoned with glory. But that had all suddenly ended. For 6 long years he'd sat behind a boring desk inside the fenced-in Terran Headquarters, cut off there ever since he and a rival had scarred and ripped each other in blood-feud. But when the DOOR THROUGH SPACE swung suddenly open, the feud was on again - and with it a plot designed to check and destroy the Terran Empire. This is sort-of a "Darkover" book, for much of the action takes place in the Dry-Towns, a locale which Bradley later shifted to be part of Darkover (Cottman IV.)
