The Limits of Imagination

Limits of Imagination Query -

The recent tributes to the late and rightly-admired Arthur C. Clarke lead me to think of imaginative fiction, and its limits. I may post a thought or two related to this, but first I am interested in your answers to this question:

Think on all the science fiction, fantasy, "weird tale" fiction, and other imaginative literature you know that featured non-human, intelligent beings, be they aliens, gods, fantasy races, or what have you. Which ones struck you as the most convincingly non-human? I am interested in appearances, motives, and psychology.
