The Metal Monster by A Merritt

The Ultimate In Science Fiction

Hidden in the heart of unknown Asia, a fantastic world of living metal waited:

Monsters of solid metal, pulsating with an unearthly electric life, wise with wisdom not of this world – and dreaming of the day when the harder-than-steel horde, mountains high, could roll forth smashing and killing and flattening the world of mere humans!

Into this uncanny realm beyond time and space – this exciting world without a heart but with the ultimate power to destroy – wandered three modern men and a girl. The Metal Monster is their story.

Originally an 8-part serial in Argosy All-Story Weekly beginning 8/7/1920.
