Walter M. Miller - Dark Benediction

"Dark Benediction" is a science fiction novella by American Walter M. Miller, first published in 1951.

The story is set about two years after the collapse of civilization due to a mysterious disease called neuroderm. The "disease" is actually caused by a symbiotic micro-organism sent to Earth from another inhabited planet, and is actually beneficial, though seen as disfiguring because of the graying of skin which eventually spreads over the entire body.
