Invaders From Planet 3 - Ep 39 - Bonus Season - The Top 5 of Kit Reed

It's the springtime of coronavirus and everyone's got the quarantine doldrums. What to do?

I recently recalled that I've got a bunch of unused interview material that I've been sitting on for a couple of years, buried deep in the archives here in the Lair of bloginhood (currently located in a fort made of old, half-used rolls of Christmas wrapping paper in your great-aunt Tilly's basement closet). So, to give you something to listen to during the lockdown — and to give me something to do — I've decided to use these previously-unheard clips to post a special bonus season of Invaders From Planet 3!

Over the next little while, I'll be posting mini episodes — just a few minutes long — a couple of times per week, featuring past guests from the show's first two seasons. Each guest will share their Top 5 list of their favourite works of speculative fiction from other creators.

And we'll start things off in this episode with a Top 5 from author Kit Reed, who sadly passed in 2017. Kit's work often touched on themes of personal and group isolation — something that probably hits home for many of us these days. Be sure to look up her novels and short story collections in your local bookstore or library.

Let the Invasion begin!
