Booked. brings you an Interlude episode! What’s that? We didn’t read and aren’t reviewing a book for you this time around. Instead, we have a list of topics that we’re going to inundate you with instead.

What kinds of topics? Racism, pie, hair plugs, Back To The Future, Peter Dinklage, James Spader (of course), Andrez Bergen’s comic book series, Banned Book Week, David James Keaton (of course,) and as always, we share some of the latest offerings from our most enthusiastic contributor, A Adam Autin.

Booked. brings you an Interlude episode! What’s that? We didn’t read and aren’t reviewing a book for you this time around. Instead, we have a list of topics that we’re going to inundate you with instead.

What kinds of topics? We start off by reviewing the This Is Horror chapbook Water For Drowning by Ray Cluley. After that, chaos. Mark Z Danielewski soliciting dead cat pictures, the geographical location of New Zealand, Robb’s childhood adventures in Alaska, and Livius found a new TV Show to obsess over.

Booked. reviews The Incorruptibles by John Hornor Jacobs! It was first teased on our interview with Jacobs WAY back during our Noir At The Bar Sessions, and we were excited to finally get our greedy eyes on it.

After the review, we chat a little about celebrity boob picture leaks, share the misguided interpretation of our idea of doing Retro Booked. – a skit called Baby Booked. by our most prolific contributor, AAA. And we share the longest non-host segment in the history of our podcast, a 20 minute edition of Word’s Eye View, where Malik Timbali and Bryce Salad (host of Osteoneurosis) do a pledge drive for Public Radio Broadcasting. Stick with it! You can hear about some great contribution prizes, like bags, bags or other bags.

Next episode is an Interlude. We have so much content ready to go out that we’re dropping an extra episode this week, in which we will talk about the latest This Is Horror chapbook, Water For Drowning by Ray Cluely, and hopefully have a review of the Craig Clevenger story adaptation, the short film Smoke & Mirrors. 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.
