ENVOY TO NEW WORLDS + FLIGHT FROM YESTERDAY
Ed Emshwiller; Jack Gaughan
Ace Double F-223 (1963): containing Envoy to New Worlds by Keith Laumer, bound with Flight from Yesterday by Robert Moore Williams.
Envoy to New Worlds - (134 pages; cover by Ed Emshwiller.) This is the first collection of Laumer's "Retief" stories. Stories are from 1961-62: originally in If. 4 of them had different titles. Diplomat and troubleshooter Jame Retief must outwit not only various scheming aliens but his bumbling superiors as well. Any of the first 3 collections and first 2 novels were quite enjoyable - I highly recommend them.
