Into the Alternate Universe, A. Bertram Chandler , 1964 single work novella science fiction
Practical and hard-headed John Grimes is not the sort to believe in ghosts but he's willing to give psychics a chance when shapely Sonya Verrill, a commander in the Federation Survey Service, proposes a ghost-hunting expedition in the sector around Kinsolving's Planet. Out where the fabric of space wears thin, ships have encountered Rim Ghosts—apparitions of craft and crewmates from alternate universes. When Grimes organizes a séance to make contact, their ship is yanked into an alternate universe, and their only hope of getting home lies in a lost relic - a sleeper ship from the first age of space exploration.
Contraband from Otherspace, A. Bertram Chandler , 1966 single work novella science fiction

Grimes and Sonya embark on a wholly different adventure: marriage. But running their own little shipping company takes a back seat to danger when a distress call leads the pair to an alien ship from an alternate universe—a ship carrying contraband from otherspace— mutant rats which evolved to rule their universe...and threaten to breakthrough to ours. This deadly cargo threatens to sheer through the fabric of reality, like a knife through soft butter.

      Ace Books began publishing genre fiction in 1952. Initially these were mostly in the tête-bêche (double) format, but they also published a few single volumes in the early years. The tête-bêche format was discarded in 1973, with later doubles being published adjacent to each other. Between 1952 and 1968, the books had a letter-series identifier; and after that date they were given five-digit numeric serial numbers. Ace stopped publishing its doubles series sometime around 1978.
