Fresh Meat by Jackie Cannon

Aliens coming to Earth for dinner.

How unoriginal.

Try harder next time, Jackie. Oh, and try harder on the setting, dialog, and characterization next time, too.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

Re: Fresh Meat by Jackie Cannon

I can't really criticize here, because I'm guilty of this kind of piece myself. I remember writing something like this about ten years ago... in fact I'm willing to bet a lot of sci-fi writers have written something along the lines of "SURPRISE! They wuz aliens all along! And also, it was Earth." At least, anyone who has ever sat through a few episodes of the "Twilight Zone."

This is "classic" sci-fi, in the sense that it has been done many, many times before.
