|Plot Summary of Thinning the Herd|
|"Five aliens come to a greenhouse devistated earth in 2011 to restore it to paradise. Each establishes a "zone" in a different geographical area where only a very few humans and no human technology can enter but are freely accessible by all other of earth's creatures. Creatures speak very little, reflect mostly lower animal insticts, are fur-bearing, possess unlimited powers and seem to place discern no significant difference betwee humans and the lower animals. The ook spans period of approximately seventy five years in which the creatures work, eventually with man's acceptance, to restore earth to paradise."
