The Case of the Little Green Men by Mack Reynolds
Trade Paperback – Surinam Turtle Press – 2009 – 167 pages
When a motley crew of oddball science fiction enthusiasts barged into Jeb Knight’s office he didn’t know whether to throw them out to call for an ambulance to take them to the funny farm. They were convinced that Earth was being infiltrated by sinister beings from another world, and the aliens were determined to take over our planet for their own nefarious purposes.
These odd characters – the science fiction fans, not the aliens – wanted to hire Jeb to track down and expose the slimy monsters. Jeb though they were nuts, but he was a private eye, business was slow, and he figured he could take the car, make a few bucks, and tell the weirdos there was nothing to their suspicions.
Little did he know….
