Beyond Lies the Wub
- Originally published in Planet Stories in 1951, here is Philip K. Dick's classic tale of humanity's discovery of a strange alien race . . . the Wub. Peterson, a crew member of a spaceship visiting Mars buys an enormous pig-like creature known as a "wub" from a native just before departure. Franco, his captain, is worried about the extra weight, but seems more concerned about its taste. However, after takeoff, the crew realizes that the wub is a very intelligent creature, capable of telepathy and maybe even mind control.
