A pulp inspired tale of President Truman's visit to Area 51 in a crisis. Aliens were coming!

Three of them attacked, wiping out a whole company of Rangers and the Secret Service team guarding Truman. They were after a captured flying saucer. The Rangers and the SS team, though wiped out to a man, took out two of the aliens, leaving Truman with a pistol to face the last one.

Emerson LaSalle is to be the main character of a film, PULP BOY, written by Anthony Neil Smith and Victor Gischler. Which one

Historical context matters: If this were actually vintage pulp, it might qualify as a guilty retro-pleasure. As a 2011 creation of the nonexistent Emerson LaSalle, however, it is merely guilty.

You are, of course, familiar with the classic pulp work of Emerson LaSalle, right? Long unappreciated and unavailable, LaSalle’s work is finally getting its due and will no doubt usher in a new generation of fans. The title of this story pretty much sums it up: Aliens invade Earth, but the mistake is theirs when they try to destroy America. Not on President Harry Truman’s watch, alien scum.

Fun little short story, and it seems like some of the inspiration for the movie Independence Day came from it.

Edit: Apparently this is from a fictional writer, so it was definetely not the inspiration for ID4 :)

a faux lost pulp story, this is mildly entertaining at best. however, someone please proof-read and edit this. 'way' is used instead of 'weigh' in one line.
