new science fiction on Project Gutenberg: Frank Belknap Long's The Mississippi Saucer

The science fiction short story "The Mississippi Saucer" by Frank Belknap Long (from Weird Tales, 1951) is now available at Project Gutenberg. As the title implies, an early take on the flying-saucer idea, it is brief enough (ten pages) that I'll avoid spoiling it by saying more about it ... so, read and enjoy!
