Quoted from the Rear Cover:
For Jeff Kerwin, Darkover meant home, the home he had left as a child, the home he longed for through the many years.  Yet, he was to be terribly disappointed when he finally returned.

First he learned that there were no records of any kind of either his birth or childhood on Darkover.  And then, after he renounced his Terran allegiance and joined the natives attempting to free Darkover from Earth's control, the Darkovans accused him of being a spy.

Someone was betraying them.  Had Jeff been conditioned on Earth for just that purpose?

Jeff Kerwin began to wonder just who, and what, he really was.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
Darkover, planet of wonder, world of mystery, has been a favorite of science fiction readers for many years.  For it is a truly alien sphere -- a world of strange intelligences, of brooding skies beneath a ruddy sun, and of powers unknown to Earth. 

In this new novel, Marion Zimmer Bradley tells of the original coming of the Earthmen, of the days when Darkover knew not humanity.  This is the full-bodied novel of what happened when a colonial starship crashlanded on that uncharted planet to encounter for the first time in human existence the impact of the Ghost Wind, of the psychic currents that were native only to that world, and of the price that every Earthling must pay before Darkover can claim him for itself.

A Beware of the 4-D Demons
The Door Through Space

First Edition,  © 1961,
"Ace Double Novel."  Ace F-117.
132 pages.
4-1/4" by 6-1/2" (approximately) paperback.
This novel is not a Darkover book, but Darkover is mentioned in passing in the story. 
It is an expansion of Bradley's story Bird of Prey which first appeared in the May, 1957 issue of the magazine Venture.

Quoted from the First End-page:
At one time Race Cargill had been the best Terran Intelligence agent on the complex and mysterious plant of Wolf.  He had repeatedly imperiled his life amongst the half-human and non-hum creatures of the sullen world.  And he had repeatedly accomplished the fantastic missions until his name was emblazoned with glory.

But that had all seemingly ended.  For six 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.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
Return with Marion Zimmer Bradley and the Friends of Darkover to the planet of the Bloody Sun, the world of Darkover, where powerful families gifted with rare mental powers of laran rule the land, where Terran technology is seen as the greatest evil, and survival often depends on a steady sword and quickness of wits.

Here dwell the Free Amazons, who have set themselves apart from their male-ruled world, owing loyalty only to each other, living their lives as free citizens, equal to any man or woman, soldier or lord.

The eighteen tales in this collection, including two by Marion Zimmer Bradley herself, tell the story of these Free Amazons, and are certain to enchant anyone who has fallen under the spell of the Amazon heroines of Thendara House and City of Sorcery.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
She had rejected her noble birthright and embraced the freedome only a man could claim.  she was Romilly who lived among the beasts of hill and forest and communicated with them, who tried humanity and turned it down for its evils and jealousies.  she had the MacAran Gift, the rare laran that conferred mastery over hawk and horse.

There was war in the lands of Darkover for this was the age of the Hundred Kingdoms when usurpers took the throne and the true king wandered in disguise with a price on his head.  romilly wanted none of all this, but there were those who shared her talents -- the men and women of the Towers.  And for them, Romilly was the key.

Whether male-garbed or beast-minded, she was also human.  And duty to her own true kind pointed her to the ultimate decision.

4-1/4" by 7" paperback.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
Described as "Bradley's best novel" by Locus, THE HERITAGE OF HASTUR, longest and most intricate of teh Darkover books, is a brilliant epic of the pivotal event in the strange love-hate relationship between the Terran worlds and the semi-alien offspring of forgotten peoples.

This is the novel of the Hastur tradition and of the showdown between those who would bargain away their world for the glories of star-borne science and those who would preserve the special "matrix" power that was at once the prize and the burden of ruddy-sunned Darkover.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
The hunters were fair by their standards -- but their standards were utterly inhuman.  They kidnapped intelligent beings from many far-off planets as prey for their hunt.  They gave them their choice of the best weapons available, allowed them plenty of time to practice, gave them a "chance."

If they could survive until the next eclipse of the red moon, wealth and freedom would be theirs.  The catch was this -- nobody knew what the hunters looked like.  How then do you outwit an enemy who might look like your best friend, your comrade-in-arms, or like a monster tha could slay an army?

Quoted from the Rear Cover: 
The most dangerous matrix on all Darkover was the legendary Sharra.  Embodied in the image of a chained woman, wreathed in flames, it was the last remaining weapon of the Age of Chaos that had almost destroyed civilization on the planet of the Bloody Sun.

The Sharra had been exiled off-planet among the far stars of the Terran Empire in the custody of Lew Alton ... until he found himself called back to his homeworld to contest his rights.

But once the Sharra was back, the flaming image spread far and wife -- and set in motion events that were to change the land, the domains, and the future of Darkover forever.

Marion Zimmer Bradley has written what may be her most powerful and unforgettable novel of Darkover.  A direct sequel to The Heritage of Hastur, it is a novel of love and hate, courage and horror, and the conflict of worlds.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
Although Darkover was a world inhabited by humans as well as semi-humans, it was primarily forbidden ground to the Terran traders.  Most of the planet's wild terrain was unexplored -- and many of its peoples seclusive and secretive.

But for Andrew Carr there was an attraction he could not evade.  Darkover drew him, Darkover haunted him -- and when his mapping plane crashed in unknown heights, Darkover prepared to destroy him. 

Until the planet's magic asserted itself -- and his destiny began to unfold along lines predicted only by phantoms and wonder workers of the kind Terran science could never acknowledge.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
Although Darkover was a world inhabited by humans as well as semi-humans, it was primarily forbidden ground to the Terran traders.  Most of the planet's wild terrain was unexplored -- and many of its peoples seclusive and secretive.

But for Andrew Carr there was an attraction he could not evade.  Darkover drew him, Darkover haunted him -- and when his mapping plane crashed in unknown heights, Darkover prepared to destroy him. 

Until the planet's magic asserted itself -- and his destiny began to unfold along lines predicted only by phantoms and wonder workers of the kind Terran science could never acknowledge.

Cover art by Hannah M.G. Shapiro.

4-1/4" by 7" paperback.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
Darkover, the planet of the Bloody Sun, is one of the great triumphs of the imagination.  Its peoples, its sciences, human and non-human, have been brought to life and its legendry has the ring of authentic folklore comparable only to the depth and complexity of the works of Tolkien and Frank Herbert. 

Around the novels covering the history of this world -- the bestselling books of Marion Zimmer Bradley -- there has grown an enthusiastic organization known as the Friends of Darkover.  the occasional gaps in history, the explanation of Darkovan myth, occupy their thoughts -- and many have tried their hands at tales to fill these marvels out.

SWORD OF CHAOS is a book of new stories about Darkover, edited and introduced by Marion Zimmer Bradley, who has supplied two new stories of her own.  In its pages everyone who has thrilled to SHARRA'S EXILE or THE SHATTERED CHAIN will find these stories fascination, exciting, and very much the authentic Darkover.

Quoted from the Rear Cover:
What forces would operate if there were two objects that were absolutely identical in form and substance?  This problem has occupied both workers in magic and the scientists of physics and psychology.  It is the pivot of Marion Zimmer Bradley's novel of Darkover during the final, flaming days of the Ages of Chaos. 

This is the story of Bard di Asturien, ambitious soldier-outlaw, and of his opponent, Varzil the Good, who struggled to establish the Compact.  And it is also the story of a man from distant Terra named Paul Harrell who was the exact duplicate of Varzil's enemy. 

TWO TO CONQUER is a novel of social forces in combat, of the use and misuse of science, of war, of rape, and of witchcraft.

Condition: 
Very Good.  Overall, book is neat and clean, but used.  Binding is intact and tight.  Covers are clean and bright.  Pages are neat and clean, no tears.  Except for:  Tiny wear, nicks, and creases on cover edges; creases on covers at front and rear spine; some light scuff, indentation marks, and few tiny soils on cover; toning on rear cover; light toning on inside covers; light to moderate toning on some pages; small dog-ear crease on one page; light small bump creases on fore-edge at bottom of some pages; few tiny creases, few tiny nicks/tears, few small soils, and some light fade of bright yellow color on page edges.
