Episode 2-05: Suffer Not An Actor To Live Wherein I review: 14. Crucible (Sigma Force #14) by James Rollins 15. The Reverse of the Medal (Aubrey & Maturin #11) by Patrick O’Brian 16. The Mangle Street Murders (The Gower Street Detective #1) by M.R.C. Kasasian 17. Heroes Die (The Acts of Caine #1) by Matthew Woodring Stover I keep SAAAAAAIILING through the Aubrey & Maturin series as they drift away from the war in which they started. James Rollins has clearly run out of s–t to write about Indiana Jones style. I start two delightful new series. The first about a […]
Episode 2-4: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday Wherein I review: 11 – Vultures (Miriam Black #6) by Chuck Wendig 12 – Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin 13 – The Far Side of the World (Aubrey & Maturin #10) by Patrick O’Brian Jammed that B2M song right up in the thoughthole, eh? Chuck Wendig takes a bow on his Miriam Black books, and I get wistful. GRRM writes yet another damn book that isn’t Winds of Winter, but it did remind me of how much I love ASOIAF, so I’m cool. And I’m at the equator of […]
Episode 2-03: Misty Water-Colored Memories Wherein I review: 6. Ex-Purgatory (Ex-Heroes #4) by Peter Clines 7. No Sunscreen for the Dead (Serge Storms #22) by Tim Dorsey 8. Treason’s Harbour (Aubrey & Maturin #9) by Patrick O’Brian 9. Ex-Isle (Ex-Heroes #5) by Peter Clines 10. Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner Illness and big-ass books make for strange bedfellows. Peter Clines brings his superheroes vs. zombies saga to a close – definitely for now and probably for good. Serge keeps serging, spewing Florida trivia and murdering a-holes. Aubrey & Maturin are saaaaaiiilllling like Chris Cross. And I embrace the horror of water […]
Episode 2-02: 1/16th Choctaw Wherein I read: 4. Ex-Communication (Ex-Heroes #3) by Peter Clines 5. Verses for the Dead (Agent Pendergast #18) by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child As I type this sentence, I wonder why Peter Clines amazing superheroes battling zombies series hasn’t already been optioned and turned into your favorite series yet. As I type THIS sentence, I wonder if Preston & Child got notes from some marketing douche and wrote this book like “Is this what you wanted, you f**kface?”
Episode 2-01: Tell Me Lies, Tell Me Sweet Little Lies CANNONBALL 11 HAS BEGUNNETHED. Wherein I review: 1. Ex-Patriots (Ex-Heroes #2) by Peter Clines 2. The Farm by Tom Rob Smith 3. A Delicate Touch (Stone Barrington #48) by Stuart Woods More delicious zombies vs. superheroes where we finally meet up with the military. And they wisely utilize Arkham Asylumishness. A son must decide whether his mother is being gaslit by his father or if her entire tale is a lie. Stuart Woods keeps being all Stuart Woodsy.
Episode 1-49: I Feel It Coming, Babe Wherein I review: 186 – The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn I guess psychologist is the new author in the dark thriller. This was pretty much Drunk Rear Window, and I saw the twists, but it wasn’t bad. And as we creep towards the finish, I ponder whether or not to keep doing the podcast or hang up my spurs. And disappoint my twelves and twelves of fans.
Episode 1-48: Even Time-Traveling Nazis Aren’t Worse Than Trump Wherein I review: 183. Bill, the Galactic Hero On the Planet of Ten Thousand Bars (Bill, the Galactic Hero #6) by Harry Harrison 184. Deep Silence (Joe Ledger #10) by Jonathan Maberry 185. The Final Incoherent Adventure (Bill, the Galactic Hero #7) by Harry Harrison As Bill the Galactic Hero peters out (dick pun intended) so do I. But first, I must high-five a billion times Jonathan Maberry for making Trump a useless tool in his Joe Ledger books. A bunch of fedoras cried into their neckbeards that Joe Ledger was now […]
Episode 1-47: The Castle Rock Diet Plan Wherein I review: 179. Gwendy’s Button Box by Stephen King 180. Bill, the Galactic Hero On The Planet of Tasteless Pleasure (Bill the Galactic Hero #4) by Harry Harrison 181. The Mortal Word (Invisible Library #5) by Genevieve Cogman 182. Bill, the Galactic Hero On The Planet of Zombie Vampires (Bill the Galactic Hero #5) by Harry Harrison Stephen King’s novellas set in Castle Rock seem to all involve strange weight loss. Two more Bill the Galactic Heroes – for you to refine your Leisure Suit Larry and Duke Nukem loss. And we get […]
