Bookbabble Episode 13: Jason vs Dracula!

Recorded 16 July 2008

Babblers: Gem, Bjorn, Donny

Synopsis:
To commemorate Episode 13, the babblers made horror and superstition as a theme for today’s show.  Didn’t eventually talk about superstition, but plenty of horror movie talk, horror-related reads and some recommendations.  Also, terrifying developments on Nicole Ritchie’s new book, Bjorn’s thoughts on the terrifying Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris, and is there such a thing as a soul?

Special Note: Look up the reference to The Big Lebowski yourself!

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.
