I was ready to hunt aliens or vampires. Wait, need a stake…

One of my favorite authors is Linnea Sinclair. She was the one who got me hooked on reading science fiction romance novels. I was so excited when she optioned Down Home Zombie Blues. And here’s the trailer for (title changed) Down Home Alien Blues: 


And in keeping with alien theme, here are some “alien” links for your friday entertainment:

The Galaxy Express – Heather Massey is blogger and author of all things geeky, science fictiony, comic-y, and beyond. A must stop during my week.

And I collected these links while blogging about things Roswell last April:

The Roswell Chamber of Commerce

UFO Roswell

Hope you aren’t feeling too alienated. Okay, I know that was lame, but I threw it in while I think up some better questions. Let’s see, would you go see/rent Down Home Alien Blues? (Please say yes, because if it does well, they’ll make more science fiction romance movies!). Do you believe? Favorite SF or SFR novel? Author?

    Oh, oh… big bugs. Ya just gotta love a movie with big alien bugs. I think I’d give it a whirl.

      The book was so fun, I’m hoping the adaptation is as good! There’s always a worry, of course, but it does sound fun, doesn’t it?

    Science fiction has never been my thing but with an added romance twist, I may need to give this genre a second chance…hmmmmm….

      If you like action adventure at all, you’d like her books. She wrote one called Accidental Goddess that just cracked me up. But nice romantic elements and just a fun adventure story. That’s what you get with Linnea. 🙂

    The movie looks like fun. I have to read the book now! I started reading Andre Norton when I was in middle school. I wrote my master’s thesis on her works. Anne McCaffrey was one of my other favorites, and I can’t wait to see what her first Dragonriders of Pern movie looks like (fx technology wasn’t ready for it when they first optioned it, IMHO). I read as much SF as I could get my hands on before kids. I took SF lit courses in college and grad school–I wasn’t about to pass those up. 🙂

      Some readers weren’t as enamored of this book of hers, but I love all of Linnea Sinclair’s books and I enjoyed the quirky, first contact nature of it. Some day I’d like to write a first contact story and do it as well! Can’t wait for the movie to release!
