Overview

Humor/Fiction-An anthology of short stories, many of which were inspired by actual reported alien encounters!
"The aliens have been abducting humans and experimenting on them for generations. Nobody knows why, and we seem powerless to stop them.
But the aliens are only human (?!) Despite their advanced technology every now and then, even for them, something goes wrong.
Some piece of alien equipment breaks. Their computer bluescreens. Some alien bureaucratic snafu fouls up everything.
And occasionally, whether by design or purely by accident, a human thwarts the plans of the aliens.
These are stories of botched alien-human encounters, especially those When Alien Abductions Go Wrogn!"

About the Author: Bob Ingraham is a retired computer programmer. He has never seen a UFO, nor has he ever been abducted by Aliens. That he knows of. Although "friends" have suggested it would explain a lot. He does not know why he became so fascinated with Alien abductions, however he decided to write a book of humor on the subject "Mostly because it wouldn't involve doing any research." From many of the books Bob has read, he also realized that, "What the hey, I couldn't write any worse than they did. And they got paid!" Bob lives in Southern New Hampshire in a vintage house, drives a vintage car, and writes on a vintage computer surrounded by vintage furniture because, "Vintage means old junk I keep repairing until I can afford something new."

    Forty-seven tales, here, many stemming loosely from accounts by alien
    abductees. . . . fascinating and well-written stories by an author who has done his homework. The stories are engaging, often funny. Illustrator Steve Ferchaud must have had a blast! My personal favorite selection is “The Disappearance” because I finally have a clue on what happened to Amelia Earhart. An engrossing read, this book, that will leave you giggling a bit and thinking a lot. And hey, the Good Guys really can sometimes win!
