Was Earth too easy to conquer and too hard to hold?
The worm-kings of Ganymede had not suspected there was other intelligent life in the solar system until a space probe bounced down on their surface. But that was enough to whet those super-beings’ appetites for conquest. After their takeover of the Earth, however, it turned out that these unruly Earth people presented a number of unpredictable problems. And they soon learned that their primary troubles were coming from such a mixed bag as Percy Y, a fanatic guerrilla leader, Dr. Balkani, an anti-social scientist, Joan Hiashi, a psychedelic folk singer, and a mysterious television personality nobody could get their hands on at all.
THE GANYMEDE TAKEOVER is an idea-a-page action novel up to the best standards of Philip K. Dick.
A paperback original first edition. Dick originally considered writing this novel as a sequel to The Man In The High Castle, with Japanese filling the role of the alien race.
