A threat from above, a threat from below, and the only ones who know are nervous, careless, and... well, one is competent!
The planet Mintop is on the verge of invasion. Three slubes--distant relatives to the banana slug--find that an intergalactic conqueror is after a crystal of immense power in their town. According to legend, the crystal is in place to seal an ancient demon underground, so when it shatters, a race begins—the three slubes must rebuild the crystal before the demon’s seal is broken. The space invader isn’t about to lose such a powerful artifact, though, and aims to stop their collectathon.
Numer, the happenstance hero with a nervous disposition, Professor Zeth, the well-meaning but careless inventor, and Cherry, the karate-tailed competent one. These three semi-heroes must overcome The Conqueror's obstacles if they are to save their planet from intergalactic invasion and demonic destruction.
The debut novel of Duth Olec and perplexed narrator Wally Plotch chronicling tales of the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos, and the first of two novels in the Nottle Crystal series.
