Ancient Aliens


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉

One day I sat down to write a bunch of "what if?" questions to get a bit ahead on the blog. A theme emerged...

What if extra terrestrials were to reveal themselves to us tomorrow? What if they revealed they'd been here in ancient history, had gone away for a couple (few?) thousand years, and had just come back?

  1. I'd just hope they weren't any of H.P. Lovecraft's ancient aliens.

  3. I'd still be begging them to take me off this planet.

  4. I think they would take one look and leave (quickly) again, this time for good.

  5. Invite them over or possible ask them join me in cup of coffee

  6. I can see them , just shake their head in disbelief before taking their specimen of a sub par human to bring home to their planet for study...one way to get rid of Trump🤪
