Re: Which versions of aliens do you imagine?
I also have a stereotype about Humans I picture in books too. I go with what is described about them up to a point. For example I have a great deal of difficulty remembering to picture Renal Keru in Titan as a big burly bearded man. I usually start out with a base of average height, and average Hollywood-weight (so much thinner than normal), and ranging in average to well above average looks.
For Ranul, I can never shake the picture of Andy Mangels from my head. Give him some spots and a uniform and he's always going to be Keru to me.
Andy's on the right.
