F-363 TAMA OF THE LIGHT COUNTRY vg
Tama Of The Light Country
By Ray Cummings
Cover by Jerome Podwil
One midnight in August, the raids began. The White Summer Camp for Girls was struck first and when the confusion ended, ten girls were missing and two were dead.
Hysterical witnesses claimed they saw shapeless forms lurking at the cabin windows. Several survivors mentioned flashes of blue-green light. As stories trickled in from the surrounding countryside, it became evident that these inhuman invaders were attacking with a purpose --- and from outer space! Why were the victims always young girls? How, despite the constant surveillance of the State Patrol, did the invader strike?
A team of scientists and reporters left Earth in a pioneer space ship to try and solve the mystery. Among the crew was the sister of the famous Guy Palisse, who had disappeared into space ten years before in an attempt to reach the moon. Reports indicated that he was dead, but near the summer camp the body of a winged girl was found. The last words she gasped were in English! Was it possible that Guy had reached his destination after all?
