||Matt Price, nicknamed "Brain Boy", seems like an average young man, but is actually a powerful telepath/telekinetic employed by the US Secret Service's "last line of counter-intelligence." Yet his latest assignment is to take a vacation!.. In the Canadian village of Boondocks, Matt meets glassy-eyed locals who mumble, "The lake is very beautiful... Swim in the lake... Very refreshing..." Vowing to stay out of trouble, Brain Boy finds his car blocked by a tree. Diverting through woods, he's seized by loggers burying someone. His mental command of "Freeze, solid!" is useless because their minds are blank! They can only think of the lake. When BB mentions the lake, they let him go. But locals at the lodge are just as loony, insisting he swim in the green-glowing lake. When BB goes boating, citizens plunge in to pull him in! Matt flies to escape, but finds his car disabled. He's surrounded by locals with weapons. Forced, he dips in the lake. It tingles, and floods his mind with peace. Recognizing powerful mind-control, Matt fights but pretends to succumb. The locals relate how Old PM found a globe. BB is led, a "Servant of the Lake", to a spaceship! The ship contains water filled with microscopic aliens, the Eerown. Old PM poured alien water into the lake to enslave the locals. They're ready to conquer Canada, then the world! In the lodge, BB experiments on lake water with household chemicals and poisons, but nothing kills them - until he knocks the radio into the bucket. Electricity kills the green glow! Matt splices wires to make an extension cord. Fighting exhaustion, Matt levitates over the lake, and drops the radio in. "A billion whispering screams" assault his mind, then the locals awake "as if from a dream". Searching, they find the spaceship empty, the water spilled on the ground, and Matt sleeping! "No more vacations for me... They're too dangerous..."
