Newsflash!: UFOs Draw Hot, Sultry Women in Nighties Out Into the Street! Sign that Civilization is Teetering on the Brink of Collapse!

Book cover image, 1960s.

UFOs in tricked out metallic colors bring families out of the privacy of their homes at night, into the streets in their robes, pajamas, and nighties. Children cling to their fathers; women cower low to the ground; men hold, point, cover, and appear more analytical.

Law and order have apparently broken down; the lights of the city are out. If the UFOs do not annhilate the world at this second, in a flash, then this is the moment of decision.

Some men will leave their families, organize into makeshift militias, and fight the aliens.

Others will have a full tank of gas, and will flee with their families into the countryside, their trunks larded with knives, guns, bullets, water fished from the toilet, and cans of Campbell’s Soup and jars of Cheeze Whiz.
