Back cover text

"The creature crept ... A shapeless, formless thing yet changing shape and form with each jerky movement, it crept along the corridor of the space ship..."

So begins the VAULT OF THE BEAST, a brilliant story of the search for a Martian treasure and for control of a mathematical secret, the unbreakable time lock. And it is also the beginning of a superb collection by A.E. Van Vogt, transporting the reader from a super-secret weapon in Germany to future worlds in galactic space.
