    The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction described this as a “hard-edged” tale of the 24th-century conquest of Earth by an alien empire the humans had judged too stupid to pull off such a coup. Only a handful of humans escaped the effects of a mutated narcoleptic drug that put humanity into protracted hibernation. The battle to liberate Earth is fought by those few with the aid of a vengeful ghost called “Gremper” by the aliens. The action is fast and furious, while the genius general of the invading fleet goes slowly insane at the disruption of his well-laid plans.

    What did Genetics and Hansen's Folly have in common? Why, everything... Genetics was statistical and Hansen's Folly impossible! In typical George O. Smith fashion, the story holds your interest by flitting through several events seemingly unrelated, into an ending that solves the dilemmas posed by the events in a most unusual way - subterfuge. George O. Smith was an American science fiction author. He was an active contributor to Astounding Science Fiction during the Golden Age of Science Fiction in the 1940s. He was awarded the First Fandom Hall of Fame award in 1980.

Candide crashed in the Forest years ago and wants to return to the Administration. Their journeys are surprising and strange, and listeners are left to puzzle out the mysteries of these foreign environments.

    Steve Launse thought God was a device that drove humans to achieve. We advanced because we needed to believe. We had to believe, and thus we grew. We created God, who created us. Then, one day, the government knocked at his door and handed him a blank check. "You can prove your theory," they said. "I don't play with human emotions," he said. They answered, "We are not talking about humans." Decisions. A blank check. No restraint. No limits. What does one do?
