Susan Grant Interview

Science fiction romance is a small subgenre. Thankfully, I was introduced to Susan Grant’s work last year, and soon began buying up all of her books that I could find. Frequent visitors to this site know that this author has fast become a favorite of mine.

Susan was kind enough to consent to an interview in honor of her new release How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days, third in her Otherworldly Men series. I was able to read it early and posted the review here.

On with the interview…

Angela/SciFiChick: Tell us a little about How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days.

Susan Grant: It’s the third and final book in the rather light-hearted Otherworldly Men series concerning a California political family (think: Kennedys) and the alien invasion they must thwart. “ET,” however, takes a more serious turn due to some of the subject matter. Reef, the newly dismantled bio-engineered assassin from book 1 and 2 must finish his rehabilitation as a normal human in the home of a suburban single mom and her two children. I feel it stands alone well if you don’t mind a few pages to get caught up with a series book.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The Magic Is Back!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is top notch suspense, action, drama, heartache, laughter, and teenage angst. With each sequel darker than the next, the intensity grows as Voldemort gathers his forces. In this installment, Harry is still trying to recover from watching his friend Cedric murdered by Voldemort. But the wizard community at large does not want to believe that you-know-who is back. When Harry and his cousin are attacked by Dementors, Harry has no choice but to use magic (illegally) in front of his muggle cousin to rid of the wraith-like creatures. As if Harry’s life couldn’t get any worse, Dumbledore seems to be avoiding him, a new professor has made it her ambition to reform the school making Harry her enemy, and Hagrid is missing.

Wednesday News and Thoughts

Superman News:
Looks like Kevin Spacey will be in the next Superman sequel. Superman: Man of Steel is supposedly set for a 2009 release. Two years away yet. It’s just torture to even read news items like this.

Kyle XY:
In Monday night’s episode, Kyle has embraced his gifts and finally sets about using them to help people. Namely his love interest, Amanda. This is his first real “case.” And he not only helps out the victim by sacrificing something valuable to him, but he actually helps out a thief as well. Kyle is truly every bit the boy scout that Clark Kent is. I just hope they don’t go the same route with the relationship with Amanda as they do with Lana in Smallville. The “will they, won’t they” thing gets old really fast. Especially, when in Smallville, you know they don’t end up together.
