Free Scifi: Eight Episodes [Lit]

"With minimal fanfare and next to no audience, Invasion of a Small World debuted in the summer of 2016, and after a brief and disappointing run, the series was deservedly shelved."
As a scifi fan, I think we've all shared the experience of having a favorite TV show that few people watched, and was canceled after a handful of episodes. Sometimes, we're vindicated by having the show achieve recognition after the fact. So what if a little known show with a tiny but rabid fanbase turned out to be the most important show in the history of Mankind? That's the premise of "Eight Episodes," a story by Robert Reed that was nominated for a Hugo. It was previously available on Asimov's website, and has since been archived here.You can also listen to an audio version at the Escape Pod podcast.

  1. Never heard of this one. I'm popping over to have a read now.

  2. That's a great short story. I guess daily life (or even finding a micro spaceship) is too boring for TV.
