Synopsis

CLASSIC HUMOROUS SF FROM A HUGO WINNING AUTHOR!

Ralph Kennedy, unassuming personnel psychologist, thought he had headaches when he was faced with clients who had psychic talents they couldn't control. (What Thin Partitions Renaissance E Books 2003). Now, through a case of mistaken identity, Kennedy is pressed into service by Space Navy, as an expert in extraterrestial psychology. The Space Navy doesn't have any aliens--or anything for Kennedy to do--they just want to be prepared. When his attempts to clear up the confusion bog down due to a mirthful mix-up of records, Kennedy has somehow convinced the thick-headed bureaucrats running the Navy that he is their man.

But just as boredom sets in and he is dreaming of suicide, a mysterious Black Fleet of alien saucers appears over Washington and demands the Earth government surrender to it or the entire planet will be destroyed. Kennedy finds everyone turning to him for advice he doesn't have. Then he and the world are saved--or are they?--by the intervention of a squadron of glowing, globe-like ships which beat off the Black Fleet.

But when the rescuing aliens from the globes emerge from their ships, Kennedy faces the biggest challenge of his life. For their appearance raises more problems than it solves: The aliens are god-like human beings in white suites and white hats. Earth is so grateful at being rescued, Kennedy finds he is the only one who is troubled by the alien's providential arrival and appearance.

Here is humorous science fiction with a point by the co-author of the Hugo winning novel, They'd Rather Be Right.
