An Interesting Answer to the Fermi Question

“Where are they” is the famous question Fermi asked about alien life. Why haven’t we heard from them? In this short story Charlie Jame Anders tries to answer this question in a darkly humorous manner. The story is told from the standpoint of a pair of alien entrepreneurs who have arrived at Earth to harvest the remains of our extinct civilization, but are surprised to find we are still around, and that just does not happen!
