Translation of "The Psychomorph" by Leni Sobez
The World Devourer Since time inconceivable the space amoeba existed in the universe. It had swallowed stars, rubbed out worlds,had sucked-in whole civilizations. But also the amoeba was nearing death. The energy sources, which lay in its range, were exhausted. It was condemned to slowly cool down and finally to die. But once more its will to live reared up. A moon approached it. With its innumerable eyes and sensors it could make out a tiny settlement on the surface of the heavenly body. An inscription on one of the buildings told it the name of the station: Moonbase Alpha.
