I am currently looking for a Science Fiction Anthology (I know, I know… Just pick one).
The specific one I am looking for includes a story that I have been wanting to re-read for a while now.
They are short stories by different authors about the same general idea: The Human Spirit/Ingenuity versus Aliens
The Specific Short Story in am looking for:
It happens in the office of an Alien General. They are planning to invade Earth.
They are giving him a report about the Humans and all that he is hearing is just confusing him about what type of race they are.
The Types of races that have been catalog are:
- Shielded - Race so mysterious and powerful that there is almost nothing known about them. They have managed to shield their entire planets for others and they do not meddle with Master and Slave races.
- When finally the Aliens decide to invade earth they receive a message that bypasses all their communications securities with the word “NO” coming from the shielded worlds, therefore implying that humans could be such a race.
and there ends the short story…
Does anyone have any ideas what is the name of the short story or the Sci-Fi Anthology?
