Booked. reviews The Heart Does Not Grow Back by Fred Venturini. Fred was on the podcast way back in the early 100’s, as a part of a three author interview episode. First up we review the book, which we’ve been looking forward to since we heard Fred talking about it’s earlier incarnation, the indie hit book The Samaritan.

After the review, we bring Fred on to talk a bit about his involvement in The Booked. Anthology, Share some insights on The Heart Does Not Grow Back, and chat about normal stuff like being a burn victim, the generosity of Chuck Palahniuk, and getting beaten as a child.

Next episode we review Dodgeball High by Bradley Sands. Until then, you can find us over at CrimeWAV, hosting an episode where Hilary Davidson reads from her book Blood Always Tells. Also, listen to our appearance on This Is Horror Podcast, where we talk for like two hours about Hannibal… and Gossip Girl.

Booked. reviews The Last Projector by David James Keaton. And since it was such a huge book with so much going on, we brought on some help. David James Keaton. And it’s a long episode! To give you an idea, we start talking about the plot of the book at the twenty-four minute mark! It’s total insanity in the best, most David James Keaton way, so grab your dogs and your innate distrust of authority figures, it’s gonna be a bumpy, movie reference filled ride.

After the review, we talk a bit about Noir at the Bar, dopplegangers and what madness to expect next from David.

Next episode we review The Heart Does Not Grow Back by Booked. Anthology contributor Fred Venturini. Until then, you can find us over at CrimeWAV, hosting an episode where Barry Graham reads his story Big Davey Joins The Majority. Also, listen to our appearance on This Is Horror Podcast, where we talk for like two hours about Hannibal… and Gossip Girl.

Booked. brings you our first ever Spookedtacular! What the hell is that? We brought on some co-hosts, threw down the books, and decided to talk about some spooky topics.

Check it out, and be sure to check out what we’re up to over at CrimeWAV and This is Horror. And check back with us soon for another book review!

Booked. continues our Bookedtober month of horror with a review of Night in the Lonesome October by Richard Laymon. It’s our first shot at doing what we’re calling a throwback, where we review a book that’s not recently released, but came out quite a while ago. If it goes well, we may be open to doing them in the future, but of course our focus is to, as often as possible, talk about the newest books.

After the review, we talk about seances, bilingual interviews, surprise gifts, being feminist and not advocating rape, and a road trip to get ebola.

Next episode is our Horror Extravaganza Spectacular, which will feature some surprise guest hosts, and after that we’re reviewing the great bias tome that David James Keaton calls The Last Projector. Until then, you can find us over at CrimeWAV, hosting an episode where Barry Graham reads his story Big Davey Joins The Majority. Also, listen to our appearance on This Is Horror Podcast, where we talk for like two hours about Hannibal… and Gossip Girl.

Booked. continues our Bookedtober month of horror with a review of The Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero! Billed as a ghost story with a twist, it turns out that it is a ghost story. With a twist.

After the review, we talk about some movies based on books that we’ve recently seen, the States of Horror anthologies that are coming out (so far Illinois and New Jersey, both featuring Booked. lover and podcaster Frank Edler,) and say goodbye to Word’s Eye View. We may also say goodbye to talk about pie.

Next episode is up in the air right now, but there’s a real possibility that it could be our first throwback episode, where we talk about a book that came out a long time ago. Until then, you can find us over at CrimeWAV, hosting an episode where Barry Graham reads his story Big Davey Joins The Majority. Also, listen to our appearance on This Is Horror Podcast, where we talk for like two hours about Hannibal… and Gossip Girl.
