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.
