    Late Bloomer by Morgan Hawes *Patron's Choice*

    Late Bloomer by Morgan Hawes *Patron's Choice*

    Late Bloomer is a perfectly good gay billionaire erotic romance novel (if that's the sort of thing you're looking for). It even has realistic internal monologues and dialogue along with believable characters! However, it's written in the "a/b/o/omegaverse" parallel universe that Paris and Chris have a hard time understanding.

    The Tuttle Twins and the Fate of the Future by Connor Boyack (a retelling of Anatomy of the State by Murray Rothbard)

    Come along with us, listeners, to the fabled land of The Dunks where all value is now held in gallons of iced coffee, and all inter-state sports travel requires the hiring of Mad Max militias.
    Published in 2018 and illustrated by Elijah Stanfield, The Tuttle Twins and the Fate of the Future encourages your children to ask, "Should we coerce others to get what we want?"
    Content warnings: Our usual barnyard language, plus: political discussion. It is impossible to discuss this book without also discussing politics, so please be aware of that and skip this one if you’re not interested in hearing about anything political!

    We read Flashback this week at the request of our Patron J as part of their Patreon rewards. If you, too, would like to force us to read a book, head over to our Patreon and select either the $5 or $10/month tier.
    Our best approximation of Flashback is, "sci-fi noir alt-right doomsday fairy tale." You have been warned.

    If you're into authentic post-war 1940s England, British class struggles, big 'ol houses that are falling apart, and ghosts, we've got the book for you! However, if you are anything like Paris and Chris, you may not like this one.
    Content warnings: Our usual barnyard language, plus: classism, dog-on-child violence, euthanasia, ghosts, mental illness, racism, sexual assault, and suicide.

    The Gateway of the Monster from Carnacki, the Ghost Finder by William Hope Hodgson *Special Guests D & Ken from Antiques Freaks*

    The Gateway of the Monster from Carnacki, the Ghost Finder by William Hope Hodgson *Special Guests D & Ken from Antiques Freaks*

    Get your bingo cards ready! We've invited the Antiques Freaks over to our place again to read yet another story from Carnacki the Ghost Finder. This time, we tackle The Gateway of the Monster. Chris treats us to some expert scoring and sound effects while Paris insults the entirety of the British isles with her awful fake accent.

Always thoughtful, often hilarious

Chris and Paris review books and it feels like your listening to friends shredding bad art into pieces. They don’t censor their language which lends authenticity to the whole premise. However, if a book ends up surprising them positively, they’ll tell you — so it’s not just mindless trolling. I actually ended up buying and reading a book they discussed favorably and really liked it.
