5 page story "Saucer Scare"

Synopsis Invading Martians take advantage of a newspaper writer who turns in a hoax story about a flying saucer landing to use his home as a forward base since no one will believe anything he tells them. They tell him all their invasion plans because they know no one will believe. He sees a headline about a hydrogen bomb test in the desert, so he prints a story about the invading Martian fleet traveling through the desert and they take his route figuring no one will expect an attack from that route and are caught in the bomb blast.
