Witty, original and unforgettable, a classic pulp tale of the bizarre that takes The Invisible Man to the next level. Originally published in Amazing Stories, January 1943.
A clever and entertaining variation of the invisible man theme, but with a unique a kind of invisibility previously not seen in fantasy fiction: for unspecified reasons, a young man has turned into something of a chameleon - he can perfectly blend into the background. Not completely invisible - you stare long enough & you see some sort of a ghost. And by exerting energy, he can make himself visible for short periods. The young man's peculiar physical condition is not as fantastic and unprecedented as one might at first believe. Everyone has had the experience of meeting a person who makes almost no impression whatsoever on them. People with such anemia of the personality are constantly being forgotten, overlooked even by friends who know them well. Their presence in a room will be unobserved for several minutes and, frequently, such people will be completely ignored, even when they are sitting or standing in plain view. In nature, the chameleon has similar properties but for a definite reason, namely that of defense against its stronger enemies.
