The Abominable Earthman-Frederick Pohl (Short Stories)

frederik pohl-the abominable earthman

Seven stories from 1958,69,61,62,63. Minor league collection with a few good ones:

“The Abominable Earthman” (1961 novelette) – The Sirians have invaded Earth. They’re surrounded by bubbles no one can get through unless the Sirians bring them in. They look for Earthmen for use in their breeding farms. Army foul ball Pinky Postal ends up in one. He’s quite a deal maker.

“A Life And A Half” (1959) – One man’s distraction has dire consequences for the future. The short story is based on an old joke.

“The Martian Star-Gazers” (1963) – Whatever happened to the Martians? Something caused their complete disappearance.

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
