Season 5, Episode 2 – Redneck Eldritch, by various authors

Despite the title, this book had very few actual rednecks in it, showing that the editor thought he knew what the slang term meant and didn’t.

We actually discuss this!

Season 5, We’re Back

Pretty much what it says on the tin.

Season 5, We’re Back

 

Season 5, Episode 1 – Vampyrrhic by Simon Clark (Matt’s Still a Colossal Douche)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand here’s the one recording we’ve done so far in 2016.

So, a bit of backstory on this year.

Essentially, the year started out a little rough for your cohosts.

Basically, Matt was coming down from the rough first few months of his new job (and one of the hardest parts of the year), Tyler was in the middle of moving with all the emotional shit that comes with that, and then he got stuck. At his parents’, for far longer than he wanted to be, which did nothing for his mental state.

We were also struggling with some burnout. Four years of a shitty book almost every month takes its toll.

And then we tried to read Atlas Shrugged and it broke us.

It broke us so hard.

So…yeah…a six-month hiatus because we just needed a break.

Sorry about that.

But we’re back.

Season 4, Episode 10 – Year in Review (AND MATT IS A COLOSSAL DOUCHE)

Matt here and, guys, I’m fucking sorry. At the end of the year I fucking fell down on the job and this is going up…in August…in 2016.

I’m a fucking douche bag.

I’m sorry.

Here’s the year in review.

Season 4, Episode 9 – Insanity by Cameron Jace

This book wanted to be so many things and managed to not even do half of them.

Tyler did get one thing out of the book, learning the joy that is Amazon review flame wars.

Not quite sure “joy” is the right word.

Season 4, Episode 8.5 – Convolution 2015 featuring Tarnsman of Gor by John Norman

We finally, finally, gave Dan his wish and read a Gor novel.

It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

This is not to say it was any good either.

Season 4, Episode 8 – A Mermaid’s Kiss, by Joey W. Hill

What’s better than a book about an angel having sex with a mermaid?

Well, as it turns out, a lot is better than that.

BUT! One of those things is Kendra Pecan saying “F you right in the cloaca.”

True story.

Season 4, Episode 7 – Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian by E.L. James

How sad of an author do you have to be when you write fan fiction about your fan fiction and even that is STILL AN IDEA THAT YOU CRIBBED FROM THE AUTHOR WHOSE WORKS YOU RIPPED OFF?

Have a listen and find out.

P.S. Tyler promised Matt they would never again read anything by James related to the 50SoG books. Anyone want to take a bet that promise gets broken?

Season 4, Episode 6 – Sharcano by Jose Prendes

Imagine, if you will, that you’re a writer.

A writer who has been contracted by SyFy to write a novelization of one of their questionable, original movies. You know, like Octoshark.

Only they don’t send you the script and you, having a sliver of taste, decide not to watch the movie. But you still need to write the damn book in order to get paid. What do you do?

Well, if it’s anything like this book you might do research on Wikipedia and ask your thirteen year-old, male cousin to tell you about the book. Because that’s how Sharcano reads, like it’s being told by a middle school-aged boy with ADD in the throws of hormonal chaos, one who throws in curse words simply because.

Enjoy.

Season 4, Episode 5 – Gate of Souls, A Familiars Tale, Book One by Verna McKinnon

This one comes to us by way of a NY Times best selling author who was ambushed by none other than Verna’s husband and she said it was the worst book she ever read.

Honestly, it’s not that bad. But I’m guessing she never had to read Antigua. Or Org’s Odyssey. Or Everyone’s an Asshole and No One is Happy. Or…

Just listen to the podcast.
