The 'Alien Contact' Interview - Paul J. McAuley

"SF SIGNAL: Hi, Paul! What's the appeal of alien contact stories for you?

Paul McAuley: I think this anthology shows just how flexible first contact stories can be. No matter when or where they are set, whether the aliens come to us or we stumble upon them, they all address that fundamental question: are we alone? It's a simple but profound question, and until it's answered I don't think we'll ever exhaust its speculative possibilities."
