Twlight At The Wells Of SoulsBook - 1980
As the rift in space rapidly approaches the Well World, petty squabbles among the forces on the planet are preventing the inhabitants from protecting Well World from a catastrophe that could destroy the entire universe, unless Nathan Brazil and Mavra Change can bring together the hostile natives by any means necessary--even death. Reprint.

The rift in the fabric of space was fast approaching the Well World, and time was running out. If the Well World were destroyed, the entire universe would disappear like a blown-out candle. But the squabbling forces on the planet weren't going to let the impending doomsday stop them from having a serious war. Troops all over the planet were gathering for the final battle. Nathan Brazil and Mavra Chang somehow had to reach the Well of Souls in time to save the universe and before any of the hostile natives managed to kill them. At best, a difficult mission. At worst, impossible -- especially since there was a price on Brazil's head and many would-be claimants! So Nathan Brazil decided that the simplest way to reach the Well of Souls was to be killed. The enemy would find that he was much more dangerous dead than he had ever been alive . . .
