I am trying to remember the title/author/editor of a book I had as a kid. It was a collection of short stories about aliens. The cover had a one eyed green alien reaching through the bars of a cage.
One of the stories was about two kids who discover ancient cave drawings that depict horrible aliens living on Earth, and then a space ship of humans coming and destroying them, implying that humans are the real aliens.
Another story I remember have kids travelling through tubes to an alien zoo. One of the kids (I think he was the antagonist) chucks an ice cream cone at the caged alien...who eventually escapes and enacts his revenge.
I think there is another one where people are sleepwalking through town to some sort of spaceship...it turns out to be a garbage disposal unit? I'm Not sure. I remember in that story the alien was explaining to the captive human what was happening to the humans that were sleepwalking, "We don't have a word for it, I think your word is "garbage disposal".
One of the short stories had "Fayetteville" in the title. Like "What happened in Fayetteville" or something like that. I remember this specifically because when I discovered that there really were cities by the name of Fayetteville in the US I was petrified!
I don't believe it was a Bruce Coville collection, I've looked through the chapters of those and none of them look familiar. I feel like it was a scholastic publication...but that's just because I think I purchased it from the scholastic book catalog.
This is driving me nuts, I've been looking for about a year...perusing the young adult section of used book stores and emailing librarians.
For some reason I keep thinking the title is similar to the "more scary stories"-esque anthologies.
Can someone help me find it?
