(1947) Sci-fi (Traveler from another realm)

From 'Fantasy Book' Vol. 1 No. 1 1947.

R: ****

Plot bullets

A micro sized man is found accidentally..
He is captured in a match box and there are hopes of money to be made. .
The small man has strange head gear.
Is someone, somewhere conducting an experiment, or is he from another world or another time?

A student on a streetcar notices a tiny man, catches him in a matchbox, and takes him home.

The micro-man is in telepathic contact with people from his electron and gives a running report on what he sees.

It's kind of hard to guess the size of the explorer, if he's really from an electron. The story has a few too many implausibilities to completely suspend disbelief. Ackerman wanted to tell his story, so he took the direct route of telling it despite reality. Perhaps it's a satire, like Gulliver's Travels.
