Searching for the Others
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...
This is a fine tuning of the first week's question of the series that emerged in the comments:
What if extra terrestrials were to reveal themselves to us tomorrow? What if they had just arrived, had, in fact, just figured out interstellar travel? What if they were as flummoxed by our other "alien sightings" as we were?
