Grace Immaculate – Gregory Benford

Earth misunderstands an alien signal.

Mildly amusing story that never went anywhere.

This started off well, and was interesting most of the way through. For one thing, it was willing to be a little more irreverent towards religion than most stories are these days, and it didn’t take itself too seriously. But while the ending is lighthearted, it’s so thin that it undercuts the rest of a pretty good story. I was a little sorry I’d read the thing through, even for free, and as short as it is.
