"Skin"
Short Fiction 1975? 7,000 words
  • This story was written for Last Dangerous Visions, the third of Harlan Ellison's (in)famous anthology series, first mentioned in 1973. However, after many years the anthology never appeared and some authors withdrew their stories and submitted them elsewhere. As far as I know van Vogt did not withdraw his story, so it remains unpublished. [Mentioned in Reflections of A.E. van Vogt.]
