Sacred Martian Pig (Idris' Pig) by Margaret St. Clair:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

An endearing story of the most totally useless cult in the Universe, and of the unwitting Earthman who became involved in it and its somewhat eccentric followers.

"Delivery of an animate object of worship from the Planet Mars seemed to be a simple task but it involved George Baker in a series of escapades that altered his entire life!"


('The Sacred Martian Pig' by Margaret St. Clair)
