This book is a collection of short stories that comprises the plans before Plan 9 from outer space. Don`t let the title fool you. It is actually 11 short stores in this book, plus a preview of the first chapter of the novelization of Plan 9 from Outer Space. There is a plan zero and there are two parts two plan 8. You do get alot of stories here. If you are an fan of Ed Wood (which I am), you will enjoy a few references to his work in some of the stories, but it`s not overkill.

Some of the stories are better than others. My personal favorites are plan zero. It involes the dinosaurs. Plan 5 takes place during the depression and involves people in the dust bowl. Plan 6 involves Nazi doctors. All the stories were very distinct, but still flowed together really well. It made for a very fun read.

You have to be in the right frame of mind to read this book. I believe that very few people would even try, finding the stories to be somewhat juvenile. Otherwise, you may find it is a waste of time.
The preview from AMAZON.COM includes the stories from both the Mesozoic Era and a portion of the Odyssey. The Odyssey selection will give you an idea of how "twisted" the story can become.
There are some problems with the language being used. Apparently, there were no proof-readers for this book. Because there are many errors.
But if you can get past this, you may enjoy the book. Most of it may actually be written with "tongue in cheek".

*** There are some minor spoilers in my review. I have tried to keep them to a minimum. ***

The connecting thread of all these stories are beings from outer space trying to control humans ... and the complete failure of each different "plan", leading up to the titled PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, based on the infamous B-movie.

PLAN 0 - Mesozoic Era
This was the most imaginative section involving intelligent dinosaurs and the "real" reason for their disappearance.

PLAN 1 - The Odyssey
The author did his own interesting version on Homer's Odyssey, showing the aliens working "behind the scenes".

PLAN 2 - Ancient Egypt
This story was unique, but somewhat violent and bloody. While the aliens were more benign, it still ended in disaster.

PLAN 3 - Middle Ages
This stupid story was a mess. It read like it was written by a child! Perhaps that was intent, since it was based on the "Pied Piper of Hamelin". But the original fairy tale was better than this one.

PLAN 4 - "Clockwork Country"
This was a funny story involving the unusual kidnaping of local women.

This book is a fun romp through history with an alien twist. For all you Ancient Aliens fans - it isn't what they told you! If you know Ed Wood's work, you will understand the approach the authors took in writing this little tale. The whole book is in need of an editor AND a proofreader, however. A lot of opportunities for we readers to fill in the blank when words are missing....
