Re: Science Fiction Trivia

OK … name five intelligent alien species who are, on a human scale, very large. For the avoidance of doubt this means at least twice the height and/or mass of an adult human being, and by "intelligent" I mean able to hold conversations, discuss abstract ideas, etc. Bonus points if they're technolog...

Gregory Benford's Eater features a sentient black hole [...] so it probably doesn't count.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Starchild and Rogue Star by Frederik Pohl and Jack Williamson Sirius by Diana Wynne Jones? Not sure if it counts as SF, fantasy, or magic realism of sorts.

OK: name five alien species who have successfully* conquered/taken control of the Earth. <Hah, you really had the time to think this over :) - or was it a curse that might've hit the forum ?> Nietzscheans in Andromeda series (Gene Roddenberry's)?
