Seeking info about theories on extraterrestrial evolution and life forms

I'm looking for academic papers (but also stories, movies, news articles, or anything else!) that talk about this: most of the ideas we come up with about alien life involves those aliens being carbon-based lifeforms with eyes of some sort and internal organs and appendages. But where are the other, more wild (and probably likely) ideas?

Organisms that have senses we can't imagine or that are built of something other than cells? How would this affect their planet and its other species? I've never run across anything with this sort of premise and I would very much like to. Thank you!
