Rull. The Rull were created by A.E. van Vogt (Artur Blord, Dellian Robots, Jim Pendrake, The Space Beagle, Weapon Shop) and appeared in six short stories in Astounding from 1940 to 1950, beginning with “The Grib” (Astounding, Apr. 1940); the stories were rewritten as The War Against the Rull (1959).

In the future the insectoid alien Rull are waging war on humanity. Trevor Jamieson, a human physicist, struggles to deal with them, recruiting alien allies, like the dangerous, intelligent, beast-like ezwal, to help him deal with the Rull and the war.
