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.

Booked. starts off our Bookedtober month of horror with a review of Jackpot by Shane McKenzie, Adam Cesare, David Bernstein, and Kristopher Rufty. If you want a preview, look no further than Livius’ Amazon review: “A total blast. Avoid if squeamish.” It’s by far the most graphic talk we’ve had in regards to extreme horror, so if you’ve been uncomfortable with some of the content in the past, you may want to reconsider listening to this episode. If you’re in to that kind of thing, then it’s your damn day!

After the review, we chat with Shane McKenzie about the book, pus, negative reviews, and lots more.

Next episode we will finally be reviewing the Supernatural Elephants that we’ve been promising to talk about for weeks. Probably. 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 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.

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!
