YA-- Those who have read Michael Renney's Klaatu Borada Nicto and other words of wisdom from invading, superior lifeforms have some ideas of what an alien invasion would be like. Foster's notions are not typical. His invasion force is fearful and benign, possibly even cuddly. The Quozl are here to settle and not to conquer . . . maybe. Foster handles the collision of cultures, the inevitable, uniquely. The government and the military with its tanks and rockets never really get a chance to be involved: the media handles it all. Foster gives readers much food for thought as he causes them to see a number of possibilities. Could the government cover up that which has appeared on prime- time TV? What could a race of violence-cured, fecund, rabbit-like beings teach us? What does American culture look like to a culture which has outgrown its need for violence? Science fiction is fun; it is the fun of speculation. So is this book.- George F. Hawkins, Episcopal High School, Bellaire, TX
