We finally got to give you our take on the latest by Fred Venturini! You may recall back in the day we talked about his book The Heart Does Not Grow Back, and we've been excited to get something new from him since. Check out our review, and stick around to hear us complain about TV series and movies.
We're back with yet another book review! This time, we're revisiting a name that we haven't mentioned in a minute. John Hornor Jacobs. He has a new book out which is a pair of novellas, both billed as cosmic horror. Is it cosmic? Is it horror? You'll have to listen to find out.
Check it out! It's our second Patreon Pick of 2019 - Jesse Lawrence has served us up some tasty Stephen Graham Jones, the 2010 book It Came From Del Rio. It's an hour plus of discussion of a book that you're likely to never read. So yeah. enjoy!

Apologies for the lateness of the episode. Robb thinks he got mono, but not from kissing. Anyway, it took a little extra time to build up the energy to read like thirty pizza horror stories. But here we are, and with our favorite guest, no less! It's a banger of an episode. Be sure to pick up a copy of Tales From the Crust, and don't sleep on picking up David's book The Last Projector while you're at it!
Check it out! We got Rob Hart on the horn just before he heads across the pond to promote the UK release of The Warehouse! It's a great hour-plus conversation. And check back in a week when we post up our review of the book to coincide with the US release. Excellent stuff!
Apologies for the slight delay this week! We had a lot of reading and conducting interviews to do, so editing took a back seat. But don't worry, your next episode will be back to the usual schedule, which means you'll be getting it in just a few days. Thanks for your patience. Now enjoy the madness that is our review of the Drive Thru Crematorium.
This one has been hotly anticipated. The newest from Chuck Wendig, Wanderers! It's not a Miriam Black book. It's a standalone story that is epic and sprawling and very interesting. Check out what we thought, and contribute to our Patreon at $1/Month for about thirty minutes of spoiler talk coming at you super fast!
It's a bit of a shorty because we were saving room for an interview. Sadly, the interview was postponed, so we decided to run the review on its own. Hopefully schedules will align better soon so we can have John on. Until then, enjoy our discussion of The Fearing book one!
It's the first short story collection we've reviewed since the summer of 2017. Yah. That means Paul Tremblay is a big deal. Check out our thoughts on a bunch of the stories, and head over to our Patreon and sign up for $1 per month for some spoiler talk too!
Guys! It's been way too long since we've had a Matthew McBride book to talk about, and so it's awesome that one finally dropped in our laps. We've been following some of the background of the development of this book for over four years, and it's great to see what McBride did with it. Spoiler, it turned out pretty awesome. Check out our Patreon for spoiler talk about this book and tons of others as well!
Hello everyone! You read that right, this is the first ever Booked. prom episode. What's that mean? Well, we talk about prom stuff, and we watched a prom movie, and we voted for a king and queen. One note - the audio is a little poor on this episode, we think due to the wrong mic being recorded on Robb's side. Sorry about that, but we hope you still enjoy it! If you're looking for the full experience, check out the Booked. facebook page for the full video! Next week we review End of the Ocean by Matthew McBride!
Okay nerds, we're back with our 14th book review of the year, which is our first ever review of Hilary Davidson! We had her on a Noir at the Bar episode reading from Blood Always Tells, and now we're here to give you the skinny on One Small Sacrifice. And as always, please hit up our Patreon for spoiler talk for this review, as well as many others.
They can't all be winners guys. Check out our review of the latest book by legendary author of the Hannibal series of books, which, sadly, didn't fare too well with us. After that, we chat about Livius going to France, the other books we've been reading, Chernobyl, gay rights, and more.
We're both back! This time around, we're reviewing Lawrence Block's first ever crime book, Sinner Man - which was recently re-released by Hard Case Crime. Check out our review, and see what Robb's been up to in his absence.
And as always, please head over to our Patreon page and throw us a little cash. Every little bit helps.
We're back with another review. This time, it's the much anticipated EL James book The Mister, the first outside of her Fifty Shades series as far as I'm aware. The weird thing about this particular review is that Robb is completely absent. That's right, for listeners, you may remember that Robb said the only way this book was going to be reviewed was if Livius found someone else to review it with him. Well he did. Now we have scientific proof of what the podcast is like without Robb. Good? Bad? I'll let you be the judge.
We're back with another review! This time, we're going back to the Golden well, with The Pandora Room. Our previous review of his work was the 2014 winter horror book Snowblind. If you're not already supporting us on our Patreon, you can sign up for as low as $1/month RIGHT HERE, and get access to spoiler talk to this episode, and dozens of others that we've already reviewed.
It's a book that we've raved about for the eight years that we've been doing the podcast, and it's only fitting that for our 250th book review milestone, we finally take on Apathy and Other Small Victories. Check it out!
