This short story was first published in the July 1941 issue of Comet magazine (that same issue that also featured The Street That Wasn’t There by Clifford D. Simak and Carl Jacobi as well as Vortex Blaster by E.E. Doc Smith)!

“The first ripples of blue fire touched Dio’s men. Bolts of it fastened on gun-butts, and knuckles. Men screamed and fell. Jill cried out as he tore silver ornaments from her dress.”
