Bookbabble Episode 5: The FrankenRitchie
Recorded 14 May 2008
Babblers: Bjorn, Lars, Gem, Donny

Synopsis:

The group takes a look at self-publishing, from Dickens’s day to the present day incarnation, and briefly examines what has changed in terms of perception and technology. Gem braves the waters to sample celebrity-written fiction, and lives to tell the tale. Also discussed: the trailblazer of a novel that is Frankenstein, what Mary Shelley had in common with Nicole Ritchie, the Best of the Booker shortlist, the 10 most challenged books in 2007 and a fanboy gush on Guy Gavriel Kay.

    Hi.. don’t know if you noticed but the audio listed as episode 5 is actually episode 4. Is episode 5 online?

  2. Donny

    Hey Mich! Sorry, you were right – I’ve inadvertently put in the link for Ep 4 as Ep 5. It’s fixed now. Thanks for the heads-up!

    No worries! Now I can go ahead and download. Thanks!

  4. so many topics and just about an hour runtime. those were the days…

  5. Donny

    Yeah, I know. I really think we should get back to 1 hour, but I know that’s like an invitation to get to 3 hours. And to think, just when we were starting this, I had originally worried about whether we’d get through 30 mins!
