Genuine Love For The Genre

Yet another great Claytemple Media production. Glen McDorman obviously love speculative fiction and loves telling us about. Clear and insightful looks into a variety of authors.

Awesome Intro to books you want to read

Glenn does an incredible job reviewing and introducing his audience to books that are on thier to be read list. A great listen and a fantastic way to pick out a new book in the SF genre. I’d recommend checking this show out and then subscribing.

Nash Kato ,

Great! Even if you haven't read these books

This podcast provides a great overview of books I wish I had time to re-read or even read for the first time. If you've read these books, you'll find this a great podcast to refresh your memory about what you liked about them. Even if you haven't read them, you'll find this podcast great. The Atoz podcast is like having a good friend do a great job summarizing some very rewarding books, and leaving you to want to visit/re-visit them, join the forum to discuss them, or just listen to the next Atoz podcast.
