The Venus Hunters - 1980

This title is currently out of print in the U.S.

"A space-ship from Venus has landed and given a warning to humanity: abandon the space programme or face the consequences. Was it just one more sighting of a UFO which never existed? Or a hallucination? Or did Charles Kandinski really meet a Venusian out in the desert? The Venus Hunters is one of ten typically bizarre stories marked by Ballard's astonishing power to evoke worlds which are worlds apart."
