Two powerful tales by one of our most exciting and acclaimed writers of the fantastic.

masked aliens who rule the Earth must accept their fate and get on
with their lives. Yet Eric Andlan needs more. What was his crime?
Who or what are the iquiri overlords? Most importantly, why are
they here? Andlan desperately needs to know. Available again at
last, this 1987 Ditmar Award-winning tale is First Contact with a
"Scaring the Train": Just a harmless holiday prank. What could go
wrong? But while they are frightening train drivers, two boys are
plunged into the heart of absolute nightmare.
