Pandemonium on the Potomac

by William C. Anderson
Release date: 1966
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

"It was the man from Venus (at least that's where he said he came from) who caused all the pandemonium on the Potomac. Actually it started in the Pentagon and it spread all over..."

Originally published in 1966, this classic goofball-satire tells the story of a man from Venus trying to convince the Pentagon to stop underground nuclear testing because it would knock the Earth from its axis and imperil the galaxy.

With fantastic details taken from the author's own experiences working at the Pentagon, including directives that read, "The attached memorandum was sent you for coordination by mistake. Please erase your initials and initial your erasure." this novel has stayed a cult favorite among Anderson's fans.
