AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It began with a few small items in the newspapers - dead dogs and cats, a mutilated child, a series of unexplained fires. Then suddenly it exploded into a full sized catastrophe.

Huge mutants - half rat, half man - began to take over the world, stealing children for slaves and destroying their populations.

Dr. Theodore Piper had been experimenting with a sonic death ray. Could he find a way to stop the spreading horror of invasion?' (www.bertramchandler.com)
