Seconded.

Also,
The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
At the Mountains of Madness by H. P. Lovecraft
Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, Jr.
Michael Shea

There are quite a few novellas that fit this, including "The Autopsy" by Michael Shea; "Something Had to be Done" by David Drake; and "The Wide, Carnivorous Sky" by John Langan.
