Can anybody tell me if the word Void has any deeper meaning here (e.g. another dimension), or whether the author simply means an empty space, emptiness? What also puzzles me is why the word capitalised.
"Baumoff died of heart-failure, of course, obviously! I should never be so foolish as to suggest to any sane jury that, in his extraordinary, self-hypnotised, defenseless condition, he was "entered" by some Christ-apeing Monster of the Void. I've too much respect for my own claim to be a common-sensible man, to put forward such an idea with seriousness!"

Thanks a lot.
