Publisher's Summary

The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction described this as a “hard-edged” tale of the 24th-century conquest of Earth by an alien empire the humans had judged too stupid to pull off such a coup. 

Only a handful of humans escaped the effects of a mutated narcoleptic drug that put humanity into protracted hibernation. The battle to liberate Earth is fought by those few with the aid of a vengeful ghost called “Gremper” by the aliens. 

The action is fast and furious, while the genius general of the invading fleet goes slowly insane at the disruption of his well-laid plans. 

“A natural-born storyteller.” (Frank G. Slaughter, best-selling author)

A classic reprint of a sci-fi masterpiece.

Originally read in Analog magazine

I liked the story in the abridged form, wanted to experience the full story. Narrator sounded as if he had not seen the text, before he started recording. His flat reading and mispronounciations, were greatly distracting from the story.
