RODS
I just finished an entertaining sci-fi read, "RODS" by Deb Hoag, based on the Roswell, NM "rods" creatures supposedly discovered by Jose Escamilla. Discovery of the phenomenon has been a controversial subject worldwide since 1994 when they were filmed over Midway and Roswell, New Mexico. An excellent book you can get in both Kindle and paperback!

No, they were invented by Trevor James Constable back in the 1950s; in reality the 'rods' are simply artifacts caused by mundane insects flying faster than the exposure setting.

Instead of attempting to link into silly UFO mythology, the author might have read some of the far superior invisible beastie sf/horror: Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror And Others or Leiber's 'A Bit of the Dark World' would be better models.

Don't forget HPL's "From Beyond."
