1965: ‘A Better Mousehole’ by Edgar Pangborn

May 14, 2008

Hertzsprung-Russell rating: B0.5

Available in: Good Neighbors And Other Strangers


Little blue alien bugs invade Earth and fill hitherto normal people with self-loathing and rabid misanthropy. Apparently the office where I work is their base of operations.  Pangborn is a great writer, but this story didn’t quite cut the mustard. I didn’t relish it at all and just wanted to finish it Quik-ly  (so I use Strawberry Quik as a condiment – sue me.)
