A series of stories, mostly set in Schmitz's Hub Universe, with some very unusual aliens. Not your usual black and white stories. The monsters are interesting, have good reasons for what they do, and give the humans a run for their money. The humans are as interesting as the aliens. Schmitz always pulls a rabbit out the hat. But sometimes it's not a rabbit..., and sometimes the hat is not what you thought it was. A lot of fun. Schmitz did a lot of other alien-human stories set in the Hub. I'd like to see them all collected somewhere. Maybe some publisher will take the hint?
