Part 2 of the space opera science fiction series by Jack Williamson. The story takes place in an era when humans have colonized the Solar System but dare not go farther, as the first extra-solar expedition to Barnard's Star failed and the survivors came back as babbling, grotesque, diseased madmen. In this second tale, they fight The Cometeers who are energy beings controlling a "comet" which is really a giant force field containing a swarm of planets populated by their slaves.
