Aliens!

I don't have a picture tonight because no one does, I suspect.

Aliens: are they dead as literary machinations? We have vampires, zombies, werewolves, the cursed, the haunted, wizards and even dinosaurs. What happened to aliens that they became eclipsed?

I understand the films. Of course we have films.

I'm thinking here of mainstream commercial text.

Is it possible that very nicely done aliens are possible? Is it possible that "the unknown" must have such conforming rules that the wide open world of aliens is just too daunting for a reader?

I'm thinking about aliens. I'm not going to write about them; but, I'm thinking about them.

Where did they all go?

I was actually thinking about this the other day. I love a good alien tale and I haven't seen any lately: on film or in books. Used to enjoy the old X-Files...nothing really like that now.

I thought about aliens all nice. I thougt about aliens as animals. Alien refugees. Alien protectors. Alien threats.

I think aliens are runway models. Nobody walks like that.
