Read in October, 2011

I've never been a fan of short stories, but this one was decidedly fascinating because it felt more like one of the historical "first contact" documents I study for my Early Modern Europe/Colonial America/Exploration & First Contact classes--each culture KNOWS they're superior to the other (and in many ways are right), but eventually has to make significant changes in its worldviews to accommodate the others' existence. But instead of the French and Indians trying to figure each other out, there's a sentient, non-human, ancient race that human religions and doctrines have to accommodate (kind of like back when Europe realized there was an ENTIRE CONTINENT not mentioned in the Bible--where did Native Americans come from, if not Adam?) Very fun story.
