A group of scientists. An object buried under the ice. A terrifying fight for survival.
When a group of scientific researchers, isolated in Antarctica, stumble across an alien spaceship buried in the ice it seems like an incredible opportunity.
The alien pilot can just be seen – a shadowy figure frozen just a short depth into the ice. It looks as though he survived the crash only to be flash-frozen on the Antarctic plateau.
The team fight the frozen conditions to free the ship from the ice – with disastrous consequences – and rescue the alien. As they transport the corpse, one of their greatest finds, out on the ice back to their camp, several scientists begin to experience extraordinary, vivid and unsettling dreams. They’re dismissed as the product of stress and the harsh conditions … but the nightmare is only beginning.
Every single one of these seven stories is pure science fiction gold, not only standing the test of time after 80 years but simply inspired works of fiction. Anyone really interested in science fiction should read this collection and see how it's written by the very best.
