The Reality Trip by Robert Silverberg

"The Reality Trip"

by Robert Silverberg

Form: Short story

Year: 1970

ID: 919

Publication history:


A different take on the aliens-are-among-us theme: an alien observer disguised as human becomes the object of a woman's amorous attention. The setting is New York around 1970, and the alien has the ability to communicate with his homeworld easily. Personal isolation (alienation even) is the main theme. Warning: this story contains some excruciatingly bad poetry written by the smitten woman. Proceed at your own risk!
