It appears someone found the giant mantis mentioned earlier this week.If these two are related, I'm the Mona Lisa The description sounds like classic cold war stuff:

“Dilke had been miniaturized, first man in a daring experiment to solve Earth’s hideous overcrowding. He was just quarter of an inch high and there was no going back.

Now Dilke, a microagent for British Intelligence, was on a mission to South America tracking down the source of a horrifying poison gas.

And in the tropical jungle Dilke was hunted…by Mamoth-fanged wolf-spiders and the ferocious praying mantis.”

Also, why is this dude wearing ugg boots?

  1. Nice comments in the link! I have to say, I feel like buying the book now! Maybe the technology for shrinking the man didn’t extend to his attire. No doubt in the sequel there’ll be a scantily clad Mrs Uggboots too.

  2. That looks and sounds well sweet. Although I do confess to a weakness for camp sci-fi.

  3. Microagent? Hahahah!

    Miniaturising everyone isn’t so great an idea though. We’d have to rebuild absolutely everything. And run away from a lot more stuff, clearly.

  4. LOL! Thanks for the heads up! Did you know I posted about the Amityville Horror?

    alert(“MANTIS IS ATTACKING!”);

  6. Microagents? This explains why British intelligence services have fallen a long way from their WWII heights.
