Invasion of the Pod People

Walking Among Us: The Alien Plan to Control Humanity. By David M. Jacobs. San Francisco: Disinformation Books, an imprint of Red Wheel/ Weiser, LLC, 2015. 280 pp, $21.95.

The plot of the 1956 cult science fiction film Invasion of the Body Snatchers is summarized on the Internet Movie Database: “A small-town doctor learns that the population of his community is being replaced by emotionless alien duplicates.” This, in a nutshell, is what Jacobs alleges to be happening in Walking Among Us, except that the aliens do not steal our whole bodies, just our DNA (which they use to grow their own versions of our bodies). They produce emotionless alien hybrids, who now walk among us. We read on the back page of the book: “A silent and insidious invasion has begun. Alien hybrids have moved into your neighborhood and into your workplace. They have been trained by human abductees to ‘pass,’ to blend in to society, to appear as normal as your next door neighbor.”
