Just found out a 50-word bit of mine is up at 50 to 1 today. Also sci-fi! what’s going on with me? Yikes?
Although I’ve read Asimov, Heinlein, Herbert, Jack Finney all when I was a lot younger, and love Stars Wars (really just the original series and only “Jedi” since in was the capper), The Terminator series (1 and 2), Alien, Aliens–I’m noticing a trend of disliking the third in a series here–and back in the day, The Invasion of the Body Snatchers (original), The Thing (original), Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, I didn’t really think I knew enough science (and I don’t) to really work in the genre. So this piece surprised me.
Listening to it being read today by the remarkable Bob Eccles gave me a thrill despite notice a few places I’d like to rewrite. Haha. The curse of the rewriter.
Anyway thank you Bob for such a fabulous read. What a terrific start to the week.
