This is a charming and engaging SF collection about a group of aliens called "The People" who end up as refugees in Colorado in the early 20th, and it's lovely to read stories about people being kind to each other and taking care of each other. Apropos given our current political situation - these "illegal aliens," who are literally from outer space, are often feared or hated by the US citizens they encounter, but when they are welcomed (and often even after they've been mistreated) the aliens are consistently caring and generous with their gifts, and help however they can. The stories could have used more diversity, but I give them a pass given that they were written between the 50s & the 70s.

When read all together, there is some repetition of themes and of encounters, but to be honest, I didn't mind. ( )

The People stories were mentioned in Among Others by Jo Walton.

Well, imagine reading a book about aliens, and then noticing some strange, at least extra-continental flies crawling on your arms or on the pages. There were four or five of them, as far as I can tell, waiting somewhere in the book to be released one at a time. These poor, half-starved things were shipped from Colorado to continental Europe, and had me slightly worried about the book being infested. But they are all gone now, probably still travelling with the Deutsche Bundesbahn.

The People are human looking aliens with a set of gifts that seem to defy conventional physics. Their ship crashed on Earth, and only small, scattered groups and individuals survived. They are friendly but strange, and after some witch hunts they have learned to hide their abilities and to just blend in. Now, a such a group tries to find other survivors.

This is classic science fiction, the first stories being published in the 1950s, so it's not as fast paced as many modern works. I found it to be some kind of a comfort book, deeply resonating with my current trains of thought about "You shall love your neighbor as yourself" / Luke 10, 25-37. ( )

I read most or all of these stories many years ago, and I really enjoyed re-reading them. They are "theistic" sci-fi, without being too much in-your-face about it (at least not by my standards). They are written with a lot of imagination, and really made an impression on me when I first read them as a child. As I found when I re-read the Chronicles of Narnia and other books I last read decades ago, I still remember my mental images of key scenes sometimes very vividly, even though I may have forgotten the rest of the story.
Reading them now as an adult, I realize that they are often a bit melodramatic, but not so much as to make them unpalatable for me. ( )

Extraordinary. I read and re-read Henderson's People books as a young girl and as an alienated teen. No, that's not fair- I didn't read them, I clung to them as a lifeline and dared to hope that there would be a place for me somewhere, someday. I'm pleased to report that, first of all, I've found a lovely place for me, and secondly, Henderson's stories hold up over time.

I have carried the Francher kid in my heart all these years, and it was glorious to meet him again. And Karen, of course. And the heartbreaking Eva-Lee. And Lytha. And Melodye, whose spelling I briefly aped. Henderson's characters are alive- gloriously, realistically, maddeningly alive.

It surprised me how much of these books I have by heart- the phrases entire, intact. The stories too, of course. I am heartily sorry that Zenna Henderson is not more well-known. She was a hell of a writer. Many of her stories center around the rural teacher and her charges. Re-reading these stories made me remember, among other things, that I always believed, growing up, that I'd be one of those teachers. 'Course, I always half-believed I was one of her lost People, and I waited a long, long time before I gave up on Jemmy & Valancy coming to fetch me Home.

Henderson examines the fault lines around religion without ever losing a deep and sobering recognition of The Sacred. Her People's relationship with The Presence makes me so terribly sorry I can't enter into it- but somehow gives me hope that somewhere, somehow, humanity can be healed. If you follow my reviews, you know I'm not a believer in any sort of higher power, but, oh, how Henderson makes me want to be. That's how good her writing is.

If you have the slightest tolerance for sci-fi, you should be reading her stuff.

The editors dedicate this book to Anthony R. Lewis, F.N., Ph.D., F.B.I.S. who created NESFA in his own image and George Flynn Fan and Master Proofreader who for years has sought to keep us--both fannishly and typographically--on the straight and narrow. Thank you.
