Abstract: For a dual pair (E, E') of vector spaces we show that whenever the weak and Mackey topologies induced on E by the pairing are different then there is a nonconvex linear topolgy between them. In particular this provides a large class of nonconvex linear topolgies having the extension property guaranteed for locally convex spaces by the Hahn Banach Theorem.
