Hi,

Does anybody know about stories dealing with the alien theme (man confronted with an extraterrestrial beings) that were written, say, before 1920?

These ones I have not read, but I'm told they reference alien encounters:

A True Story , by Lucian [2d Century]
History of New York, by Diedrich Knickerbocker [Washington Irving] (1809).
The First Men on the Moon, by H.G. Wells (1901).
