Summary
"When the first contact between humans and aliens from another planet happens, will they say, "Take me to your leader," or is "Surrender, puny primitive bipeds" more likely? Ever since H.G. Wells wrote The War of the Worlds, science fiction writers have speculated on this. Now find out from such authors as Poul Anderson, David Drake, Sarah Hoyt and more give us their take on first contact"--
