Creating New Alien Species

by Lee Masterson

Our human culture and physiology arose from our planet of origin’s ecology. Our basic survival instincts were formed according to the surroundings into which we were raised. Our speech patterns also evolved according to the region into which we were born.

Why then, would a writer assume that an alien being, who looks different to the humans around him, would still walk and talk and think the same way, if he was raised in extremely different circumstances.
