Post Bradley, Marion Zimmer: The Door Through Space v2 18 jan 2009

It is interesting just how much of The Door Through Space Bradley cribbed for her Darkover series: The Terran Empire colonizing the universe, a world bound by compact rather than charter to the Terrans, culture clash, Dry Towns, The Ghost Wind, a hint of ESP, chains binding women, the red sun, catmen, and the exclamation of the word "Sharra". These are both superficial as well as deeply thematic similarities to Darkover. In truth, if The Door Through Space was only given minor edits, it could pass as a Darkover novel. This was Bradley's first published novel and Darkover was obviously a work in progress throughout her entire career, but it is interesting to note how much of this novel she used to create an entire series of novels completely unrelated to this one. The world of Wolf could easily be Cottman IV. Had the word "matrix" shown up anywhere in TDTS I would have cried foul.

Race Cargill is a Terran intelligence agent who has been stuck behind a desk because of a bitter dispute with another agent who has "gone native". When Cargill's sister comes to Race because her husband, the former friend and agent who maimed Cargill, has apparently threatened her and her daughter, Cargill goes back into the field instead of leaving the planet for good. Adventure ensues.

This has been taken from PG and is only in US Public Domain.

Edit: no more lines. Chapter One formatted now

I noticed that you left in the lines and the formatting for the chapter one header is missing. Can these please be fixed?

I left in what lines? Oh and Chapter One is H2 formatted? Could you please explain what you mean?

Could there be a special problem in LRF? I can't read that on hardware, sorry. And the Sony library is not installed. Anyway: Chapter One should be formatted and the lines should be 33% only.

Edit: I have seen the book in Calibre now. It IS quite ugly as the lines are full and Chapter One really is not formatted. I will try to create another book directly from my source file and remedy the problem.

Sorry for the problems. Should be remedied now! v2 11 views. Please let me know if that displays okay.
