Reading list: E.T. and Baptism

Right now (on Scribd) I am listening to the book Would You baptize an extraterrestrial..

So far it's great: and as a Catholic one is happy that scientists can explain the faith vs science kerfuffle is mainly a straw man argument used to manipulate the public.
One of the authors gives a talk here.

Connie Willis (sci-fi writer) has an interesting story called "Samaritan" that is similar.... is it permissible to baptize an orangutan that has achieved some level of self-awareness? (It is also set in a near-future where denominations have fused and changed and in some cases got very liberal)
