Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Three beings are aboard a ship around a planet which none of them can see using ordinary vision, for the planet is made of shadow matter, perhaps the dark matter of our own universe, perhaps something even more exotic. Their mission: to capture a portion of this matter along with a creature made of the substance; imprison it; study it; return it to their home.

But one of the three researchers has gone insane, driven mad by the rigors of space travel, and the other two have to find a way to deal with him or return him to sanity before the mission, and possibly their lives, are terminated.

First published in Universe, 1987.
