The tie-in to the upcoming blockbuster prequel to John Carpenter's THE THING - the never before told story of the original doomed Norwegian expedition. When a group of scientific researchers, isolated in Antarctica, stumble across an alien spaceship buried in the ice it seems like an incredible opportunity. The alien pilot can just be seen - a shadowy figure frozen just a short depth into the ice. It looks as though he survived the crash only to be flash-frozen on the Antarctic plateau. The team fight the frozen conditions to free the ship from the ice - with disastrous consequences - and rescue the alien. As they transport the corpse, one of their greatest finds, out on the ice back to their camp, several scientists begin to experience extraordinary, vivid and unsettling dreams. They're dismissed as the product of stress and the harsh conditions ...but the nightmare is only beginning.

"The most powerful force in science fiction ever." - Isaac Asimov
John Wood Campbell, Jr. (June 8, 1910 - July 11, 1971) remains a towering figure in science fiction. His influence, first as a writer, later as editor of Astounding Science Fiction (Analog) transformed the field, shaping the golden age of science fiction and producing SF legends, Robert A. Heinlein, A. E. van Vogt, Theodore Sturgeon and Isaac Asimov.
WHO GOES THERE? is best known to science fiction and horror film fans as THE THING because it is the story that formed the basis of Howard Hawks' THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (1951) and John Carpenter's THE THING (1982). But to ardent readers of SF literature, it is the legendary SF-suspense classic penned by none other than John W. Campbell. With its vivid ensemble of characters, forbidding antarctic setting, and an unforgettably original creature at the center of all the action, the story well deserves its legendary status; it was voted "one of the finest science fiction novellas ever written" by the Science Fiction Writers of America. This all-new edition features an Introduction by William F. Nolan (Logan's Run, Burnt Offerings), and includes his never-before-published Screen Treatment of the story. Written for Universal Studios in 1978, Nolan's scary, suspenseful, cinematic take on Who Goes There? truly makes this a must-have edition for fans of Campbell and THE THING motion pictures.
