Aliens visit the corner drugstore

Novels about aliens that visit our everyday world, or a real period piece, and how ordinary people react. The stories could range from the heartwarming (think, "E.T.") to the allegorical (INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS). I'm excluding most invasion novels and dystopias, as well as UFO books.

Cheryl Along the lines of Body Snatchers, maybe you want to add The Puppet Masters and The Host?

And do you know of, or do you want to make a list with me, about inhabiting a host body in particular, so that we can add Every Day? (I'm not done with it yet, but I'm pretty sure it's not aliens.)

Cheryl Oh, and I just found mention of Wild Seed which was referred to as 'body jumping' so that should be on this list or the potential other one... you tell me....

So, other tag words include symbiont and parasite, I see. But I'm still not finding a Listopia list with exactly the focus I'm looking for.
