VOR

(1958)
A novel by

 
Beings of unthinkable fury assault the earth with their terrible might! Seven million degrees of infernal fury -- The glowing, compact ovoid plummeted downward, the whole sky screaming like a metallic banshee as the air boiled away from its sides. A supersonic Bang broke over the forest, but the thing was already glid ing in among the tress. The curious centerboard glided down--earth fountained away from it like water--and all the forest burst into flame! Then a thin black line etched a perfect circle on the side o f the metal egg--the circle thickened into a door or airlock--the air was rent by a searing, screaming hiss, & suddenly--The strange being--soon to be known to all mankind as VOR---emerged.
