What is The Intergalactic Nemesis?

The Story Thus Far...

The year is 1933. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Molly Sloan and her intrepid research assistant Timmy Mendez team up with a mysterious librarian from Flagstaff, Arizona, named Ben Wilcott. Together, they travel from Rumania to Scotland, across Europe to North Africa, then to the Robot Planet (in the Effdillinplitzenpire Galaxy), and finally to Imperial Zygon to face the most terrible threat humanity has ever known: an invading force of sludge-monsters from outer space known as the Zygonians.
