"…we store information differently, reading a science fiction story, to make it make sense."
It's a little difficult to describe what is happening in Doorways in the Sand. It describes a near future in which contact has been made with a larger civilization encompassing many planets and races. Circumstances arise in which it becomes necessary for alien cops to keep an eye on certain people on earth - difficult, considering the fact that these aliens are not remotely human.
My other favorite alien from this book is Dr. Mrmm'mrm'mlrr (pronounced just like it looks) who is a sentient (and telepathic) psychotherapist plant who practices assault therapy on his patients.
