Welcome to Episode 167 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we talk about a couple of upcoming projects before beginning our next triptych, this one on Chuck Wendig‘s Invasive. This book, due out on August 16th, follows futurist and FBI consultant Hannah Stander as she tries to uncover the mystery behind a bizarre murder…and unravel her imagined fears from the real threats she faces. Part disaster tale, part horror, and part thriller, Invasive is a lot of fun, and we talk about the book’s style (which is all Chuck), the message being sent behind the story, the speed of the read, and many other things. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll talk with Chuck Wendig himself about the book.
