Lee and Eddie are back to their constant bickering over which one of them Stephen King might adopt and who’s allowed to make edits (and when). Lee (who Stephen King would totally adopt if Eddie weren’t the obviously better choice), gets in some sucking up with a glowing review of Bag of Bones. Eddie (who has great hair and is really good at pretending to lose at board games) reviews Doug Johnstone’s Crash Land, and isn’t sure about aviation anymore.
This week Lee and Eddie talk clown sightings, conspiracy theories, short fiction, and return to the King of Horror!
After a long week of grappling with technical issues, Lee and Eddie are back, and they’re ready to go! Lee still can’t get over The King, Eddie’s pretty sure she hasn’t misunderstood Karin Slaughter, and get yourself ready, because Eddie is about to drop some high-quality trashy fan-fiction on air.

Eddie just can’t stop raving about Val McDermid’s amazing radioshow of John Wyndham’s The Kraken Wakes, Lee is still talking about Stephen King, and we take a trip back in time to the future as imagined by Isaac Asimov in the 1950s (that’s right, Eddie googles stuff from time to time)!
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!
