Summary :

The first person to annoy the martian was Mrs. Frances Economy, scrambling for the last of her popcorn near the end of a movie on September 5th. One second all was normal, if a little noisy, the next, Mrs. Economy was unable to interact with the world around her. No sounds came to her from the outside, and none went out from where she presently was. The only link she had with the real world was that they could see her in a faintly ghostlike way.

Afterwards, many others began experiencing the same thing. One at a time, people were disappearing, and rumor has the culprit as being a martian. A reward is offered, and a city cop has the idea that if he can track this martian down, he'll be sitting pretty good when he collects.
