An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.

Tubb, originally writing as Volsted Gridban, bridges the gap between physics and metaphysics, conceiving speeds superior to that of light, transport by dematerialisation and re-assembly of atoms in a remote sector of Space-time - practical, possible, occult and mysterious.

Carmodine is then forced to go back on a second expedition to Pluto to exorcise his tortured memories of abandoning his crew. And unless he can remember what happened, the second expedition will fall victim to whatever decimated the first. It is a journey he does not wish to make-a journey into terror!
