Men of the Macrocosm (Synopsis)

Clark Ashton Smith

Beings who appear in our world, dwindling down from some major universe on an unknown scientific quest. Feared and pursued by men (though without hostile intentions themselves), they take refuge in the microcosm, disappearing into an atom. The pebble containing the atom is kept in a scientist's laboratory and carefully watched. The beings reappear at length, and shatter the laboratory — but leave the scientist uninjured — in their return to the greater world.
