As listeners of the Invaders From Planet 3 podcast know, every season, in addition to interviews with authors, editors, performers and artists, I like to include a "Voice of the Fans" episode featuring regular folks talking about their first loves in science fiction, fantasy, and all points in between. I'm currently in the middle of producing season 4 of the show, and I thought that since I'm headed to Dublin for Worldcon this year, I'd see if anyone else attending would like to be a part of this season's VOTF episode. With fans of all kinds of nerdiness coming from all around the world, what better opportunity is there to showcase what got people hooked on genre stuff?
To that end, at some point during Worldcon, I'll be announcing a date, time and a public location at/near the convention centre where anyone who's interested can meet, and we'll record a quick interview where you get to share what first made you fall in love with speculative fiction. It can be a book, TV show, short story, comic, movie, video game, radio play, collectable, or anything — whatever was the spark that made you say "I love this stuff and I need more of it!"
If you're going to Worldcon in Dublin and you're interested in doing a quick interview, let me know in the Comments section below, and keep an eye out for my announcement on the Dublin 2019 Irish WorldCon Community Group on Facebook.
More details soon on how you can be a part of the Invasion!
