Looking for obscure SF book

I read an SF book in the mid 1960's that was so disturbing that I just couldn't finish it. It was about a group who had landed on a planet or moon with a 'Waystation'. Clearly there had been prior visitors who had met an horrific end. They were all being stalked by, I believe, 'slimy silver pigs' who lurked in the hills or gulleys surrounding the Waystation, but were coming ever closer and hunting them down. It was really an SF horror story. I passed the book onto someone else, who also found it too disturbing & also passed it on. I would add that I am NOT an easily disturbed person. Forty years on I would dearly like to read the book again, but cannot recall the title. I have tried the novel 'Waystation' by J McDonald & it wasn't that one. Neither do I believe it is the Waystation written by Clifford Simak.

Can anyone help me out with the title? - if you can then I would be VERY pleased to hear from you. Definitely a very frightening book, and I read all the Dennis Wheatley black magic & Satanism novels as an 11/12 year old and did not find them at all disturbing - 10 years afterwards as an adult this Waystaton book really gave me a difficult time, so I'd like to complete the challenge now & finish it.

No, this is definitely not the Simak... And I'm afraid I don't recognize the storyline at all... But perhaps someone else will.

Meantime, welcome to the Chronicles!

Found a book called We All Died At Breakaway Station, written by Richard Meredith. From the descriptions on the net it could be the one you are looking for.

Thanks for that, I'll do a UK book search to see if I can trace it.

Regards,
