by

Hysterical tales of tiny half-human creatures sweep through town. Even the idea of such monsters seemed insane to Doc and his crew — but one thing was very real: the trail of blood!

    The Wee Ones is wee in many aspects. It is a wee book, coming in at less than 100 pages. But much more importantly, it is a wee tale. It is a small town mystery, basically of nothing more than hoaxed greed. The story is melodramatic to the point of gagging, while nothing serious is really happening. The horror of “wee little people” cruising around town is so overplayed with nervous breakdowns and screaming antics that it makes the B horror movies of the 1950s look like masterpieces.

    But hey, every once in a while even Doc had to have an off day. If you need a wee bit of diversion one day, what better way to waste time than with Doc Savage. But if you are looking for one of his substantial, amazing, breathtaking dashes around the globe, please look elsewhere.

    Lester Dent based the plot of The Wee Ones in the mystery and real case of The Mad Gasser of Mattoon.
