They Met the Space People! is an online resource for grabbing free (FREE!) eBooks. Much like Combos, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Wuzzles, they take two wonderful things (reading and freeness) and mash them together, creating something even greater than the sum of its parts.

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to read, for free (FREE!), the book We Met the Space People by Helen and Betty Mitchell, two sisters who made contact with a UFO in the 1950s. I don’t want to ruin the book for you, so I’ll just say that the aliens are liberal vegetarians with a serious love of PBS. I like them already!

Sorry today’s entry was so late and short, but I spent a lot of time trying to remember what the Wuzzles were called.

He’s a rhinockey.

  1. Do they talk about alien techonology? Just like in Raël's book (you certainly know the raëlian movement?), it seems that alien technology in the 70's (as described from contacted people) looked just like the technology in an original Star Trek episode: lots of little lights flashing but with no real goal, computer who were as big as a room, etc.

    Funny how for extra-terrestrials who are supposed to be thousand or millions of years ahead of us, we can still find a link between their technology and ours…

  2. They've got some great books on there, it's nice to have a lot of Project Gutenberg books already converted to formats suitable for on screen reading. The flat text files that Project Gutenberg used to provide were sometimes difficult to read on-screen. It's good to see that The Count of Monte Cristo, Don Quixote and Dracula made it into the top twenty. Not just self help books, woo, and the standard ostentatious choices.
