Boom Town - by Glenn Rolfe - Fun with alien slime
The fact that Boom Town is dedicated to Art Bell and George Noory should tell you all you need to know about this fun little romp into the world of the unknown. Be it aliens among us, global conspiracies, or any other weirdness in the world at large, you're likely to hear about it on Coast to Coast AM. Still don't know what this is all about. Take a moment and google it.
Inspired by such madness, Glenn Rolfe has created an entertaining little diversion about the fictional town of Eckert, Wisconsin. It all started in 1979 when a young couple observed a saucer-like craft hovering over Hollers Hill. They saw a blue beam blasting down from the center of the craft into the hill and causing the ground to rumble. Now the "booms" are back. What does it all mean and what is the mysterious blue ooze discovered nearby?
Reminiscent of the great old-time creature features, Boom Town is quite imaginative and at times disgusting as such a story should be. Take them. Bring them. Ascend.
As enjoyable as this read was, I would have loved to have known more about what was really going on, but much like many of the mysteries explored on Coast to Coast AM, we may never know.
Boom Town is available now as an ebook from Samhain Horror and from Amazon.com.
