Interior text

Between the Galaxies

The conquest of space has carried man to the rim of our galaxy — and there was nothing left but to step over that rim.

Only one man had ever survived a flight into the depths of deep space between the galaxies and he came back with a deranged mind. He said there was something out there, something capable of warping a man's soul. But he refused, even in the face of death, to reveal what it was that he had seen.

When Derek Calver, master of the spaceship The Outsider, had heard the story he became obsessed with the desire to discover for himself the secret of intergalactic space. Nothing would stop him — even if it meant bargaining his soul for a glimpse of that terrible unknown.
