Aldiss, Brian. The Dark Light Years. London: Faber, 1964.

Imagine Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness as told by Jonathan Swift, relevant here for the "primitive" aliens' building largely organic spacecraft as a cottage industry. Cf. and contrast B. Shaw's novel Wooden Spaceships; contrast mucoid building of aliens in the movies ALIEN and ALIENS.
