The Cave of Horror, by Captain S.P. Meek

My latest non-fiction popular science book, Invisibility: The History and Science of How Not to Be Seen, is now available! Here’s another classic blog post about science fiction invisibility.

Skulls in the Stars

Yet another post about invisibility in fiction! Will I ever run out of these? I feel like I need to write another book just about invisibility fiction.

So in my last post, I wrote about “Invisible Death”, which appeared in the January 1930 issue of Astounding Stories of Super-Science. On a whim, I happened to browse the rest of the stories, and found another story about invisibility in that same issue. Clearly invisibility was a hot topic in that era.

The new story I found is titled “The Cave of Horror,” by Captain S.P. Meek.

It is a mixture of horror, action, and science fiction, and features run-ins with an invisible monster that has wandered up from the bowels of the earth and is now haunting Mammoth Cave, in Kentucky!
