    Not a major fan of this one. The premise is great, and the continuous momentum of the townsfolk slowly "becoming" something more alien should have been creepy. But instead, at times, it came across almost cartoony. The gadgets and gizmos the suddenly-genius townsfolk create get a little silly, I felt. The concept of a town being taken over, slowly person-by-person, is a creepy one though, but I think SK covered the theme better with 'Salem's Lot (only with vampires instead of aliens as this one is). I do credit SK's tackling of alien stuff though. He hasn't done much of that. (Inter-dimensional and other-worldly yes, but no much with straight up aliens). Not awful, but not great either.

    Ho-Hum Effort

    Not his best work. About three quarters of the book are various character developments, some interesting, some a waste of space. The plotline is pretty old for sci fi geeks like myself. Buried UFO is unearthed, strange happenings in local town, crisis as alien takeover looms. An interesting development is that one of the hero characters is a chronic alcoholic with no signs of abatement and the other is a spunky heroine who is lovable, then suspect, then taken over by the aliens. It's enough to entertain but there are no new insights here and as sci fi it's pretty meager fare.
