328 – We Eat Our Own by Kea Wilson

Play
Sorry for the delay in an episode. It’s all Livius’ fault. First he goes off to New Orleans on a vacation, and when he gets back, he loses his voice! Thoughtless. But we’re back with a review of We Eat Our Own and some election night conversation. Check it out, and come back soon for our review of Rob Hart’s South Village.

We’re back with the 2016 Spookedtacular! According to unreliable sources, it’s our seventh year doing the Spookedtacular episodes, one of our favorite of the year. Joining us as always for Spookedtacular are our beloved guest hosts Amanda Gowin and Jesse Lawrence. We talk about tons of spooky things including clowns, our biggest fears, dead girls, and probably the most terrifying thing of all, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Check it out!
Next episode is something. We promise.

326 – A House At The Bottom Of A Lake by Josh Malerman

Play
We’re back with a new novella review. Maybe that’s what we should do, just read novellas. It’s a lot faster and easier. Anyway, check out what we have to say about the latest This Is Horror novella, A House At The Bottom of A Lake by Bird Box author Josh Malerman! Also, stick around for a little talk about the SyFy show Channel Zero: Candle Cove. It’s all a watery horror.
Next episode is one of our favorite episodes to do – the Spookedtacular! You won’t want to miss this.

325 – Interlude

Play

Hey everyone. Here’s an interlude for you to chew on. We talk a lot about TV shows and Robb’s world travels. And announce something that we’ve been vaguebooking for a while. Also, news on the Spookedtacular!  

Next episode? We review the latest This Is Horror novella by Josh Malerman!

324 – The Warren by Brian Evenson

Play

We’re kinda back, and still experiencing some sad feed trouble that’s preventing iTunes from updating. This is awful and we’re doing everything we can to get it fixed. But that won’t stop us from bringing our Patreon contributors content as quickly as possible. Check out our review of the novella The Warren by Brian Evenson, and stick around for a conversation about Desiree, the film adaptation of the Craig Clevenger book Dermaphoria. 

 

Next episode is an Interlude, where we’ll probably talk about Robb’s trip to Texas, where he may or may not have messed… with Texas.

323 – The Rib From Which I Remake the World

Play

Booked. reviews the new book out by Ed Kurtz, The Rib From Which I Remake the World! We first introduced Ed to you in our April 2016 recording of the Chicago Noir at the Bar. You may remember Scott Phillips saying Ed stole the show. You can imagine why we chose to read this book. Check it out, there’s plenty of weird to go around.

Next episode is a mini-review of some shorter Brian Evenson fiction, and we may talk about the adaptation of Craig Clevenger’s Dermaphoria, called Desiree.

 

322 – Interlude

Play

It’s probably the shortest episode we’ve done in a long while, clocking in under 40 minutes. But that’s okay, we think you’ll like what we have to say. It’s almost October again, which means Livius is starting the coercion bandwagon for weird halloween shit to talk about. And as always, talk about K Dramas. Enjoy!

Next episode? The Rib From Which I Remake The World, by Ed Kurtz. Get some!

We’re back with more book talk! We read the new novella collection I Can Taste The Blood, which includes authors John FD Taff, Josh Malerman, Erik T Johnson, J Daniel Stone, and Joe Schwartz.
