Welcome back to the Great Derelict!

This week in the run up to halloween Andy is joined by the master of the macabre Mr Jim Moon to discuss Alien invasion as a trope throughout the history of Sci-fi and why it has resonated and been presented as a horror trope more so than encountering Aliens out in Space, and how the sub-genre has evolved through time.

You can read the very first Alien invasion story 'The Germ Growers' from 1892 here:
