Beyond the Silver Sky

by Kenneth Bulmer
Release date: 1961
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

When the heavens fall, men must fight!

Keston Ochiltree's visit home had been short and disastrous. His newborn nephew had proved to be one of the Hopeless Ones and had only served to remind him of the present plight of mankind. Keston knew that the decision he was being called on to make might mean a new start for humanity or the end of their underwater civilization.

Each day found more Hopeless Ones being born: pitiful creatures with webbed hands and feet. More important, the inhuman Zammu were pressing their attack in a fierce struggle between species. Most important, the silver sky was lowering. The shimmering sky-level would soon shrink until they all burned in the gaseous beyond.

So Keston's decision might mean everything. Should he stay in the Emporer's shark-calvary to fight the Zammu? Or should he join Professor Lansing in an illegal attempt to find out what lay Beyond the Silver Sky?
