Who was at the bottom of this propaganda war? That is what George Hanlon and his team needed to find out. “Alien Minds” is not a novel laden with heavy social significance or burdened by deep psychological study; it is, quite frankly, a novel of tomorrow written for the pure pleasure of entertaining the reader…
