Timothy James Lambert | 5 comments I read this book in paperback around 1981.
It was an adult level book.

It was a science fiction book. The frame story was that in the future life on earth was lived under domes due to an environmental disaster.
The main part of the book was horror-like in that a rustic area became infested with the alien creatures that were about the size and shape of silver dollar pancakes that flew through the air and attached themselves to people and then maybe took them over. The police and maybe a scientist were fighting the invasion but due to the frame story obviously lost.

Many thanks!

Timothy James Lambert | 5 comments Sadly, no. The future frame was very short. I think it gave the impression of the world a lunar feel.

Thanks though!

The Puppet Masters perhaps?

Timothy James Lambert | 5 comments Hello Ann,

No, but very close, I feel. The main difference is that those infected didn't get taken over by an alien consciousness.

Thanks though!
