Writing Aliens

AlienToday’s topic comes from QSFer Michael Barnette. “Do you write aliens? How do you use them in your books? How alien are they?”

There are many variations – possibly an almost infinite number – when it comes to writing aliens. In MM romance, we tend to see human-like aliens, so they can interact romantically with our human protagonists. Although certain non-human accessories (tentacles, anyone?) are not unheard of.

But aliens can also take on much different forms, from the title one in the Alien or Predator movies, to much more benign but still different forms.

So my questions to you today – I’ll use Michael’s since they are so on point: Do you write aliens? How do you use them in your books? How alien are they?

And as a reader, what are some great alien stories you’ve read?
