      Imagine the world facing a menace unlike any we have ever known or dreamed of before  a blight from outer space against which all our scientific skill seems useless. Imagine, also, that a means has been found to bring back to life the greatest scientists who ever lived  giants from eternity! But there are limits to this boon: only five of the great minds of the past can be restored to us. Which five would you choose? It all started when a meteor landed in Kansas and people awoke to find a small area covered with a horrid, pulsing red substance which engulfed and devoured everything in its path and spread outward in all directions. They dug ditches and the blight merely flowed into the ditches, slowly feeding off the soil as it moved. They set fires around it, and the blight moved in and lapped up the fuel under the fires putting them out. Some substances resisted longer than others; it fed upon anything alive with terrible rapidity, but took longer to absorb metal or glass  but absorb these things...
