The Thing From Another Perspective
Peter Watts, marine biologist and brilliant SF author who gives away much of his best work for free [see here], has written the story of John Carpenter's classic monster flick, "The Thing", from the viewpoint of the alien. You can read Watt's story for free at Clarkesworld here. Since the most recent remake of John W. Campbell's original story "Who Goes There?" [read for free here] hits the screens today, you might want to take a look at the original story and its most recent literary offspring.
