9780575036758: Slow Birds: And Other Stories

They were called slow birds because they flew through the air - at a pace of three feet per minute. Slow birds always kept the same height above the ground and they would bank to avoid substantial buildings, but frailer obstructions they would push on through. No one could keep track of a single slow bird. After each one appeared it would fly onward slowly for any length of time between an hour and a day. And vanish again. To reappear somewhere else unpredictably. But how? And why?

From AudioFile:

This intriguing story about a planet being destroyed by missiles from another dimension offers an interesting view of social adaptation. Jim Bond captures the spirits of the characters, both as young and, later, old men, with a slight Scottish brogue for the dialogue. M.A.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
