Xenofiction is written from the perspective of a non-human protagonist.
The protagonist could be all sorts of different things: an animal, a mythological creature, an intelligent robot, an alien, a microbe, or some other living (or robotic but sentient) being.
The possibilities are endless.
I enjoyed all of these stories and would recommend any them to someone who wants to read something from a non-human perspective.
