Today this would be called Flash Fiction. In 1979 it was a "short-short" story. It was first published in the Winter, 1979, issue of Unearth Magazine (Volume 2, Number 4). This is a story of the first encounter between two intelligent species. I've tried to present an unusual viewpoint and challenge some preconceptions. Mostly, I hope you enjoy it.
