Literature like Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles challenge us to think about our concept of what an “alien” might be like, and how they may react to human exploration of their planet. Countless television series, movies, and books have explored this intriguing question. What about those who claim to have had encounters already? Well, after reading multiple accounts of alien abduction, Mrs. Geary’s Sci-Fi Literature class set out to explain what they thought the abduction experience might be like. Students spent a few days conducting interviews (X-Files style complete with creepy music) about their own, somewhat terrifying, “alien-abduction” stories.
