It’s all-out laugh warfare when Little Green Men – Attack!

From the battlefields of the Ozarks to the marble halls of the Boston Library, from Central Park to the skies above Washington, on the moon and in the seedie

Not a review. Includes my story "A Fine Night for Tea and Bludgeoning."

One of the advantages of going to science fiction conventions is that you learn of books you'd never otherwise hear of. In this case, the book was Little Green Men - Attack!, which is a (mostly) humorous collection of short stories featuring, well, little green men.

I learned of the anthology when Martin Shoemaker read his short story "Meet the Landlord." In it, humans have colonized Mars and 30-some years after that "Martians" show up looking for back rent. It was hilarious. Most of the stories

Very solid, amusing collection of little green men stories. Very original takes, very different approaches, all humorous. Definitely recommended for someone looking for some light, fun, fast reading.

Horribly funny

This book had me groaning and laughing out loud. Not just a funny book it contains insight into human nature.

An overall really enjoyable anthology of comedic SF stories built off of the classic SF trope that aliens are "little green men." In most of these stories, the aliens are in fact some combination of "little," "green," and "men," although not necessarily all three at the same time (and in one or two of the stories, the aliens are none of the three, exceptions that prove the rule if you will).

There are some themes that recur (for instance, the idea that aliens learn what they know of Earth from ou

From psychic cats to french-kissing aliens, Baen's Little Green Men--Attack! offers up a variety of laughs from seasoned story tellers and editors.

Each author takes the idea of little green men and runs with it in their own direction, sometimes playing with SF and conspiracy theory tropes, and sometimes shooting off into the unexpected--unless you were expecting Japanese mythological demons (“A Cuppa, Cuppa Burnin' Love” by Esther M. Friesner), or Victorian roller-skate-offs (“A Fine Night for

I enjoyed some of the perspectives, particularly when the aliens interact with regular humans. And I loved the library.
