Gray Morrow; Kelly Freas
Ace Double (H-103, 60 cent cover price) 1968 paperback. Condition is Fine: very tight and square with flat spine; age tanning is very mild and uniform (much less than expected for its age.) No stamps, marks or writing - a very clean copy that looks new (edges are "sharp" / pages are bright.)
Ace Double H-103 (1968): The Age of Ruin by John M. Faucette, bound with Code Duello by Mack Reynolds.
Code Duello by Mack Reynolds (141 pages, cover by Kelly Freas) - Section G of United Planets is running out of trained agents, so they start using "special talents" like a research biologist who could bend steel bars like rubber bands, a middle-aged lady with total recall, a lady acrobat who looked like an 8-year old, a bullwhip artist, a mild mannered young man who'd never lost a bet in his life, and the best pickpocket who ever lived. They are assigned to the frontier planet Firenze, where citizens are always ready to defend their honor, under the Code Duello. [Several members of this team also appeared in the short novel "Fiesta Brava" from Analog in 1967.]
