Season 3, Episode 3 – Ice Station by Matt Reilly

Like an ’80′s action film resurrected from the past, Ice Station by Matt Reilly was March’s book for 2014. Brought to us by Eric the Baker (thanks, Eric), this month’s volunteer, friend, and poor decision-maker was Nate, who took solace in the fact that at least it wasn’t Ghost.

Season 3, Episode 2.5 – A Half-Cast? Those Exist?

Tyler and Matt respond to some listener questions about how doing the podcast has impacted which books they choose to read.

Season 3, Episode 2 – Antigua: The Land of Faeries, Wizards, and Heroes by Larry Ellis and Denise Brown Ellis

We didn’t think it was possible.

We should’ve known better to say anything.

But we found a book…a book as bad as Org’s Odyssey.

God. Damn. It.

Season 3, Episode 1 – Awoken by Serra Elinsen (WE’RE BACK!)

And 2014 is off to a bang! Well, more of a burble considering this month’s book. Featuring the LAST Young Adult Supernatural Romance book we will be reading for the foreseeable future (because, great Cthulhu, are we bored of them), this month we read Awoken by Serra Elinsen.

NO MORE OF THIS CRAP, PLEASE. Give us some other crap. Like crap horror or crap sci-fi. Hell, I’ll take some crap fantasy. *looks to February’s book* Oh, wait…we’ve got that covered.

Season 2, Episode 14 – Almost Nothing Bad Happens in December (Warning, Live Recording)

And here it is, the final episode of 2013, and it’s a live recording in my house.

Just a heads up, the quality on this one isn’t our usual best as not everyone was speaking into their mics very well and the settings were off somehow. So, bare with it, only a few more weeks until the reviews start up again.

Season 2, Episode 13 – A Year in Review 2, THE REVIEWING

Tyler and Matt run through the year’s books where Tyler makes his list from least to worst (those two shouldn’t be hard to figure out if you’ve been following along), they categorize the books as “Most X”, and basically get all shmoopy over having read a lot of crap books together.

Season 2, Episode 12 – Steampunk Erotica by Ora le Broq (CONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!)

This is it, the big one, the long one, the really drunk Convolution 2013 con-recording podcast!

You see what I did right there? That was better written sexiness than ANYTHING that appeared in this book.

Join Tyler, Matt, Kendra, Jen, Dan, and Ed as they proceed down the paths of insobriety to a horrible destination that ends with the word “slobber”.

Trust me, it’ll make sense when you hear it.

Season 2, Episode 11 – The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert *kaffcoughJ.K. Rowlingkaffcoughcough* Galbraith

It…it finally happened.

It was a book we liked. That we actually had very few negative things to say about it…

It feels weird. Good…but weird. But don’t worry, we still have Convolution’s shitty Steampunk Erotica to review and that’ll be more of our usual fare: booze and self-loathing.

Also, check out the shouts outs to three other great podcasts: Welcome to Nightvale, We’re Alive, and The Leviathan Chronicles!

Season 2, Episode 10 – Hedging His Bets by Mina Carter and Celia Kyle

Tyler and Matt take their second-to-last trip to Supernatural Romance with Hedging His Bets By Mina Carter and Celia Kyle, a book where the only good thing about it is that it is blessedly short. Matt here, and I have to say I think the male protagonist in this book is the doucheiest douche to ever douche a douche.

To make up for the fact this book was so short, we also read Steelheart By Brandon Sanderson, a problematic book we both wanted to like. Enjoy!

Season 2, Episode 9 – Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tyler and Matt take another dip into the Supernatural YA Romance (or would that be YA Supernatural Romance?) genre with Tiger’s Curse, a book so mediocre that you can’t even really comment on the mediocrity. With a dash of “white-person-saves-the-day” and “Consent? Psh, that’s for old people!”, Tiger’s Curse puts the nail (mostly) in the coffin of us ever doing this particular genre again. Spoiler alert: it’s because they’re all bad.
