Scott has an incredible brain. He comes up with plenty of “why didn’t I think of that?” stories. This foray into the realm of monster science fiction, while not his best work, is still a solid read with plenty of artful prose. I have to agree that there were too many characters that should’ve been combined. I did have to stop every so often to re-read a section because I thought someone else was the focus. All in all, I did find this to be an enjoyable read full of wacky characters getting sucked into an Outer Limits creature. I’m a big fan of the 1950’s B-movies, and I think this would’ve made a fantastic black-and-white flick. Worth a spot on your Kindle.
