The Door Through Space is a science fiction novel by Marion Zimmer Bradley. It is not part of her Darkover book series, but Darkover is mentioned (as another planet) in passing in the book; and many Darkover elements appear in the book (red sun, Dry Towns with chained women, catmen and other nonhumans, Terran Empire trade cities, Ghost Wind, etc.). It was first published in book form in English by Ace Books in 1961, bound tête-bêche with Rendezvous on a Lost World by A. Bertram Chandler. The novel is an expansion of Bradley's story "Bird of Prey" which first appeared in the May, 1957 issue of the magazine Venture.
The novel concerns an intelligence agent and a blood feud in the Dry Towns in the north of a world called Wolf.
