    Episode 11: The Gilda Stories

    Join Alys Wilfred Earl (@alysdragon), Mattie Tucker (@doomedrider), and Geoffrey Sperl (geoffreysperl.com) for Jewelle Gomez's The Gilda Stories. We also discuss a bit of how the novel serves almost like a counterargument to Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles (which we will be tackling in the near future).

    Episode 10: Fledgling

    Join Alys Wilfred Earl (@alysdragon), Mattie Tucker (@doomedrider), Michael Gordon (@bengoram), and Geoffrey Sperl (@geoffreysperl) for another LOST EPISODE! In this episode (recorded in February 2019), we discuss Octavia Butler's FLEDGLING (and there's a reference to some of what Geoffrey and Mona were talking about recently on BabylonSquared, too!), question where the capitalist American vampire originated, and discuss some VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE. We also apologize for the slight background hum that pops up here and there.

    Episode 9: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

    Join Alys Wilfred Earl (@alysdragon), Mattie Tucker (@doomedrider), Michael Gordon (@bengoram), and Geoffrey Sperl (@geoffreysperl) for a LOST EPISODE! In this episode (recorded in April of 2017), we discuss Holly Black's THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN (and there's a reference to BABYLON 5, too!). References abound to our first episode (CERTAIN DARK THINGS) and some foreshadowing for BLOOD SINISTER, too! And... is Mattie really Holly Black?!?

    Episode 8: Bela Lugosi's Vampire Movies

    Episode 8: Bela Lugosi's Vampire Movies

    Join Alys Wilfred Earl (@alysdragon), Mattie Tucker (@doomedrider), Michael Gordon (@bengoram), Mona Lucius, and Geoffrey Sperl (@geoffreysperl) for a discussion of Bela Lugosi's vampire movies: DRACULA (1931), MARK OF THE VAMPIRE, RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE, and ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (fine, fine... and MOTHER RILEY MEETS THE VAMPIRE if you're into self-punishment).

    If you're interested in getting these movies for yourself, see our (US) affiliate links: DRACULA and ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN are both part of DRACULA: THE COMPLETE LEGACY COLLECTION (https://amzn.to/3qymZG1); MARK OF THE VAMPIRE is not available in a physical format except as part of a multi-pack, but it can be rented (https://amzn.to/3frt4xH); if you want to get ahold of everyone's favorite of these, then definitely pick up a copy of RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE (https://amzn.to/3Ia9YZg).

    Lastly, if you want to subject yourself to MOTHER RILEY MEETS THE VAMPIRE (or VAMPIRE OVER LONDON), see THE MUMMY AND THE MONKEY'S HAIRY SCARY HANGOUT for their take on it (https://youtu.be/FTJ_iguIA5Q).
