Aliens are what most people think of when they think of SF, alongside starships and rayguns. The genre is much wider than that, especially at the literary end, but these are its most well- recognized trademarks. However, not all aliens are the same.

They can do or be almost anything; the only rule is that they’re not exactly like us.
