Episode 1-39: Marvel Doesn’t Care About Black Humor Wherein I review: 146. The Labyrinth of Spirits (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books #4) by Carlos Ruiz Zafon 147. Lethal White (Cormoran Strike #4) by Robert Galbraith 148. Ambush (Michael Bennett #11) by James Patterson The Cemetery of Forgotten Books adds more blocks to the every growing library. JK Rowling always does great relationships, and does procedurals as well as wizarding. And Ten is Enough the Cop puts up a lackluster murder involving the Canadian Mob vs the Mexican Cartels. Also, I bitch a bunch about Marvel having never apparently read Chuck Wendig’s […]
Episode 1-38: I Punched Satan! Wherein I review: 144. The Fall of the House of Cabal (Johannes Cabal #5) by Jonathan L. Howard 145. Post Captain (Aubrey & Maturin #2) by Patrick O’Brian I bid adieu (temporarily, dark forces willing) to my favorite necromancer and I continue the swashbuckling seafaring adventures of Captain Jack and his doctor pals. And I continue to bust through two other wonderful but long books.
Episode 1-37: Brothers Gotta Hug! Wherein I review: 143. The Brothers Cabal (Johannes Cabal #4) by Jonathan L. Howard Where I wax romantical about how much I love the Johannes Cabal series. And the joy of a solid 4th book in a series.
Episode 1-36: Ferris Bueller’s Synthesizer Wherein I review: 136. Johannes Cabal the Detective (Johannes Cabal #2) by Jonathan L. Howard 137. Master and Commander (Aubrey & Maturin #1) by Patrick O’Brian 138. The Cold Commands (A Land Fit for Heroes #2) by Richard K. Morgan 139. The Burning Page (Invisible Library #3) by Genevieve Cogman 140. The Fear Institute (Johannes Cabal #3) by Jonathan L. Howard 141. The Guilty Dead (Monkeewrench #9) by P.J. Tracy 142. Foe by Iain Reid After chunking a zero in the Yahtzee column last week, I finish everything up this week. I pop through two more […]
Episode 1-34: It’s a Dead Man’s Party, Who Could Ask For More? Wherein I review: 134. Johannes Cabal the Necromancer (Johannes Cabal #1) by Jonathan L. Howard 135. The Masked City (The Invisible Library #2) by Genevieve Cogman I fall in love with an evil bastard and our Librarian heroine continues swashbuckling through steampunk fantasticness. And I begin to fall woefully behind in my reading.
Episode 1-33: We’re Here, We’re Queer, Get Used to It Wherein I review: 128. Hiddensee by Gregory Maguire 129. Crooked by Austin Grossman 130. The Steel Remains (A Land Fit For Heroes #1) by Richard K. Morgan 131. Hollywood Dead (Sandman Slim #10) by Richard Kadrey 132. Bloody Rose (The Band #2) by Nicholas Eames 133. The Invisible Library (Invisible Library #1) by Genevieve Cogman I wax ecstatic over the recent trend of inclusion of homosexuality in fantasy and fiction and how it makes all the neckbeards cry into their fedoras. Gregory Maguire brings his special breed of disappointing fairy tale […]
Episode 1-32: Heroes Depend On Which Side of History You Stand Wherein I review: 126. The Cuckoo’s Egg by Clifford Stoll 127. Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer by James Swanson A little historicalisciousness. Cliff Stoll was one of the first people to track down international hackers. TOPICAL. And we learn that his name was Mudd because he was a f–king dirty ass Confederate who was all down with kidnapping Lincoln.
Episode 1-31: Just The Beasts Under Your Bed, In Your Closet, In Your Head Wherein I review: 119. The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker 120. Serpentine (Anita Blake #26) by Laurell K. Hamilton 121. The Sellout by Paul Beatty 122. Turtles All The Way Down by John Green 123. Sweet Lamb of Heaven by Lydia Millet 124. Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames 125. The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnopp Helene Wecker gives us a historical love story between two servant myths. Laurell K. Hamilton comes back and sets Anita Blake against every sh–ty person […]
