This week is all about the classics of Horror! Eddie admits she watched the film instead of reading the book, Lee tries to psychically contact William Peter Blatty for an interview, and everyone learns some valuable life lessons like, “Don’t give up, I’m sure your monster will come to life soon!” and “If you correct people who say that Frankenstein is the monster, then you are the real monster.”
This week Lee and Eddie are absolutely star struck when they interview the amazing Gilly Macmillan, author of What She Knew, and The Perfect Girl.
Lee finally agrees to read a book written before the invention of AstroTurf and Eddie picks up a book younger than the selfie stick, the latest in Patricia Cornwell’s Scarpetta series. Tune in next week to see how they’re handling the challenge!
Lee finishes up the long awaited sequel to the Stephen King classic, The Shining and Eddie talks tripod mecha invasions from the nineteenth century. Lee gets overachiever of the week, and reviews two books, and they both talk coinci-do’s and coinci-don’ts of their fave fictional feasts.
This week Eddie reviews the one and only Anne Holt, Lee won’t stop gushing about Gilly Macmillan, and over three decades after The Shining was published Stephen King wrote a sequel, then quite a bit after that Lee found it and freaked out! Will it be great? Will Lee discover the key to making her favourite authors write sequels? Will Eddie stop interrupting long enough for her to finish her review? Probably not, but find out in episode 28!
This week Lee and Eddie are Tremblay-ing with anticipation as they interview Paul Tremblay, mathemetician, author of A Head Full of Ghosts, and one of a handful of authors to scare the living hell out of Stephen King!
Listen in wonder as Lee asks interesting and thought-provoking questions of the acclaimed writer (who has a new novel coming out soon), wince in extreme embarassment as Eddie asks him to co-sign her home loan. He lists many influences, one of which is an all time favourite of both Lee and Eddie: Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay which they discuss at length (spoiler warning: give it a read!).
