1958. Driving through the British countryside, unthinkingly misogynistic space scientist, Dr. Boy Brett, and his companion, Doris Night, pop into a quaint village pub for a cheese ploughman's. Waiting for them outside is a most unwelcome visitor: Grurk, an indestructible, monosyllabic robot from outer space.

You could say that this is a cross between the movies Earth Vs The Flying Saucers, The Earth Dies Screaming Sky Commander: The World of Tomorrow -but I won't! Why not? Well, Hugh Marlowe isn't in this book for a start.

Quite a bit of enjoyable fun with nicely toned art to give it that 1950s B movie look. Not read anything by Boultwood before but this is good. Rather good. Ding dong.
