Terror Out of Space is a science fiction novella by Leigh Brackett.
An eerie story of a silver land beneath the black Venusian seas. A grim tale of brooding terror whirling out of space to drive men mad, of a menace without name or form, and of the man, Lundy, who fought the horror, his eyes blinded by his will. For to see the terror was to become its slave – a mindless automaton whose only wish was to see behind the shadowed mysterious eyelids of “IT”.
Terror Out of Space was first published in Planet Stories magazine in 1944. E-book: ePUB, 11.000 words, reading time approximately 1 hour.
