Format: Paperback
In a novel variant of the usual 'aliens on Earth' theme, this features three aliens, whose spaceship - a genuine flying saucer - explodes, leaving them just enough time to bail out. The novel follows the three aliens and their encounters with humans.

This is quite gentle and warm-hearted SF. There were shades of John Wyndham, albeit in small-town, American settings. And there's a feeling it was written for a teenage audience, despite the presence of some curious alien sex. The ending is perhaps a little pat, a little anti-climatic, but as an examination of the way humans could interact individually with aliens - as opposed to the usual global conflict - it works very well. A minor novel, then, but no less enjoyable for it.
