's review

really liked it

Extremely short, but clever and interesting story. As with all of the journal Nature's fiction offerings, it has a focus on a scientific 'what-if.' Here, that question is: "What if Earth was invaded by aliens whose biology was more similar to that of starfish than that of homo sapiens?"

The answers - and the misconceptions that they end up acting from - are horrifying, amusing, and all-too-logical.

It's also nice to see an alien invasion story from the point of view of the aliens.

The story is available online, here:

Read due to this being a Hugo nominee.
