Rolling Stone Magazine once used some M. Sid Kelly quotes -- but for lousy reasons (Dec. 11, 2003). He was a so-called 'key player' in the the Washington Post's Pulitzer Prize-winning series Angler: The Dick Cheney Vice Presidency (June 2007). Before that, he was a subject of investigative reports in the Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times concerning certain political shenanigans. Unfortunately, this lead to him testifying to Congress about the shenanigans. He was nominated for the 2003 Ron Ridenhour Award for Truth-Telling, so that helped. Plus he got a 30-million-year-old extinct mole crab named after him (Lophomastix kellyi) for not-at-all lousy reasons.
But does any of this trivia qualify M. Sid Kelly to write a satirical science fiction trilogy about aliens getting more than they bargained for when invading Earth? YES.
