Earth Alert!

What defense could she raise against mutant science—telepathy, invisibility, teleportation—especially since Earth was not aware of its danger! Kris Neville (1925-1980) was an American science fiction writer. His most famous work, "Bettyann" (1970) is considered an underground classic of science fiction. "Calvin practiced teleportation for endless hours. He kept the metal ball Forential had given him in almost constant motion. He would exclaim delightedly and hurl it toward one of the twenty-seven other mutants in his compartment. Until the time he hit John in the back of the head with it, his intended victims had always parried it. John lay in a pool of blood, and Calvin began to cry--loud, shrill wails of despair and contrition. When Forential came, he knew instinctively what had happened. Calvin represented the only failure the aliens had experienced in their mutation program; ten years ago his mind had ceased to develop."

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
