    When Scotland is hit by the recession, Police Constable Hamish Macbeth notices that the Highland people are forced to come up with inventive ways to lure tourists to their sleepy towns. The quaint village of Braikie doesn't have much to offer, other than a place of rare beauty called Buchan's Wood, which was bequeathed to the town. The savvy local tourist director renames the woods "The Fairy Glen," and has brochures printed with a beautiful photograph of a kingfisher rising from a pond on the cover. It isn't long before coach tours begin to arrive.

    Any additional comments?

    I've read or listened to all the Hamish novels. The plot, ranging from Russian mafia to an American fundamentalist is too farfetched. Also, the characters of the two children seem unbelievable.

    Back in the 1950s at the dawn of science fiction, writers were turning out wildly imaginative stories for the pulp magazines. Robert Silverberg, writing as David Osborne, estimates he wrote over a million words in one year. Here are three more exciting stories from those heady days from the pioneers of science fiction: "Aliens from Space" by David Osborne, "The Man with Three Eyes" by E. L. Arch, and "Conquest of Earth" by Manly.

    Story

    This collection was disappointing. The first novel, "Aliens from Space", was corny but still entertaining. "The Man With Three Eyes" was an attempt at comedy with a touch of sf or fantasy, but to me was not interesting. "Conquest of Earth" was an unorigonal fantasy.
