Alien archive graphic with text and icons for the Spectrum online

Greetings Earth dwellers, and thank you for visiting our Alien archive!

Inspired by our reader Jehovian whose article Theory of aetiology of Asperger's was featured in Issue 95 of the Spectrumwe've gathered together a collection of intergalactic articles, artwork, letters and poetry on the topic of aliens. 

Aliens and the concept of being from out of space is often used as a way of describing how it feels to be on the autistic spectrum. Of course, not all autistic people necessarily relate to this idea. 

We've had some fantastic submissions on this universal theme (both literally and figuratively!) throughout the years. We hope you enjoy the read!
