Pick Your Planet
by Dorothy Piper
Young Lex Simms is half-alien. He brings his Martian relatives to Earth before a comet can destroy the atmosphere on the Red Planet. They would have died of thirst there anyway in a few years' time. But Fi, a super-being, claims Earth as his own and threatens to torture any non-Earthling he finds here. The Martians must decide where to live. Whichever planet they choose, their future looks grim.
