Word of the Day: Weird

For episode 3 I welcome two new guests, James DeBruicker and Marilag Angway! We discuss Silk by Caitlin Kiernan, which is a darker book than the previous two books on the show. The book brings about memories of 90s goth, a discussion of intent vs. impact, and how a book can be excellent, but light on plot.

Books Referenced in this episode:

Silk by Caitlin Kiernan
All Fall Down by Ally Carter
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Party at the World's End by James Curcio
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Jerusalem by Alan Moore
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Word of the day: Gooey

For Episode 2 we discussed Tim's recommendation, Infected by Scott Sigler. I apologize in advance as I fidgeted around the entire episode with the necklace from Surly-Ramics Etsy Store and didn't realize it was picking up in the recording. 

On top of the novel we discuss our vague survival plans for surviving the apocalypse, I Am Legend both book and movie, the author's approach to modern day "publishing", whether or not the guys would take Perry's way if infected, and host Meghan goes on a mini rant about how everyone should be watching Buffy again.

Books referenced in this podcast episode: 

Infected by Scott Sigler
Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
The Children of Hurin by J. R. R. Tolkien 
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
Buffy Season 8 by Joss Whedon

Today is the premier of the podcast! I am joined by Tim Lowe and Joe Schulman as we discuss Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brian. Joe tells us why this is one of his favorite books, I explain why I briefly thought this book was going to be a murder mystery, and Tim and I briefly debate whether or not Saga is the best story out there period.
