4.6 | Umberto Eco, Ling Ma, & Book Promises

Oh dang! Eddie’s still on that Gothic kick! Time to get way too meta with Umberto Eco’s Name of the Rose! Lee has been overcome with lyrical awe with Ling Ma’s breathtaking debut, Severance. And we want to know what promises a book makes when you pick it up (Oh no! A talking book, don’t freak out!)

Is William of Baskervilles just a sneaky Sherlock Holmes clone? Will Lee recover from the wonder that is Severance in time to review it without weeping? Is Eddie secretly eating books for sustenance?

Find out in this (not at all) suspenseful episode of… Crime Time!

3.1 | Sue Grafton, Rachel Caine, & Magical Contracts

Lee and Eddie take a moment to pay their respects to the one and only Sue Grafton, who sadly passed away late last year. Without her amazing work this podcast would probably never have been made, and we wanted to share some of our favourite moments from her Alphabet series.

Lee has gotten their hands on a copy of Killman Creek, the sequel to the amazing Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake, and they just can’t wait to tell you all about it! Eddie wants to know the answers to the questions that keep us all up late at night, and that is: Is it sexy, or is it scary? That’s right, you’ve always wanted to know if the Fair Folk were straight up sexy, or super scary, and we’re here to answer that!

2.21 | Stephen Fry, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, & Literary Background Check

Lee’s been scarred for life by Resident Evil: Biohazard, Eddie’s been scarred for life by hearing about Resident Evil: Biohazard, and here’s hoping you find it at least intriguing, if not entirely face melting. Eddie reviews Stephen Fry’s The Liar, and they both discuss what it means to be contemporary to a work of fiction, or experientially adjacent.
