The Body Snatchers
"But, showers of small frogs, tiny fish, and mysterious rains of pebbles, sometimes fall from out of the skies. Here and there, with no possible explanation, men are burned to death inside their clothes. And once in a while, the orderly, immutable sequences of time itself, are inexplicably shifted and altered. You read these occasional queer little stories, humorously written, tongue and cheek most of the time, or you hear vague distorted rumours of them. And this much I know, some of them, some of them, are true."
