Jimi Hendrix was reportedly a big science-fiction fan – I’ve even read that Purple Haze was inspired by a story where someone zaps people with a purple ray – so his inclusion in Alien Invasion Week is appropriate.
I’m not sure if Jimi would have cut it as a science fiction writer, though. In Third Stone from the Sun, the aliens aren’t impressed with humans, but they do dig our chickens. That makes me and anyone who’s spent any amount of time around chickens question the aliens’ definition of intelligence.
But hey, they’re the ones with the Vogon Constructor Fleets, so who are we to argue?
