The Dark Dimensions, A. Bertram Chandler , single work novella science fiction
In a John Grimes Rim adventure, strange things happen out where the stellar medium grows thin, out where it is difficult to say if you remain within the galaxy or you're falling through the intergalactic void. Add to that strangeness an Outsider ship filled with technology so far in advance of the human as to appear magical, and the catalytic presence of Commodore John Grimes, and anything can happen... anything at all.
