AS ALIEN AS APPLE PIE


AS ALIEN AS APPLE PIE
   Aliens in American pulp fiction were almost always monstrous. They looked like reptiles or insects and their goal was to conquer Earth. And even though it was biologically implausible, they had an eye for earthly women. Why did American audiences love to hate aliens? One theory is that many Americans feared and felt threatened by the waves of immigrants coming to the United States in the early 20th century. British writers, less fascinated by alien invasions, were busily writing about military invasions.. something that really did threaten them during the first half of the 20th century.
