The New Neighbors
by Gary Kuyper
Aliens have landed on Mars and have started terraforming procedures in order to colonize the red planet. The powers-that-be on Earth are not happy, but have little choice other than to establish diplomatic relations with the new neighbors when they unexpectedly pop over for a friendly visit. This light-hearted foray into the world of SF could easily be subtitled, '50 shades of Diplomacy.'
