Aliens have been a major theme in science fiction literature from the very beginnings of the genre...though they seem to have morphed over the decades from humanoids (six-limbed and blue though they might be!) to the utterly incomprehensible to noncorporeal energy beings -- and everything in between! This collection focuses on aliens as depicted in many different forms over many different decades. While in no way comprehensive -- I'm not sure a "definitive" book of alien stories could ever be assembled -- we think this one is, at the very least, a lot of fun. Included are:
