The Two Mikes

The Two Mikes
Ever wanted to talk with someone about a book you just read? You could just join a book group and talk about it, drink a little, veer off on tangents, work back around to the book again, and finally wrap it up by picking the next book.

But what happens when the book you just read is about about hungry zombies or a haunted house, and your Eat, Pray, Love–reading friends aren’t really into reading it, much less discussing its finer points? That’s what we’re here for. We Two Mikes will be your virtual book group for discussing new and interesting and old and half-forgotten horror books.

If you want to follow along with us, look at the next forbidden book on the table and start reading.

Episode 4.0 Brian Lumley's Necroscope



A no-holds-barred smackdown over Brian Lumley's genre-stretching break from his orthodox Lovecraftian roots. Mike S. hates it then kind of likes it. Mike M. loves it then hates it then forgets what they were talking about. Enjoy the table pounding and glass clinking as the guys continue to suss out the mysteries of audio production. We blessedly edited out the ear-blasting poodle yapping.


The Mobius Stripper
2 parts gin (lending a properly English refinement)
1 part Becherovka (to add a cloven Eastern European air)
2 parts Campari (made from only the bloodiest of oranges)

Shake well with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Put on your vampire teeth and enjoy.

G'day, both Mikes, all the way from Australia,

Just checking out your site before I answer your query.

Like General MacArthur, I'll be back! As an author myself, your site intrigues me.

Hi guys,

Easily fixed. Go to your dashboard and click on Templates (or Layout, depending on which version of Blogger you use).

Go to Fonts and Colours (on the left-hand side).

If you want to change the colour of your Blog Title, it's about the fifth or sixth option down, so just scroll down till you see it - make any change and click the Save Changes option.

To change the font (typeface) or size of your Blog title, just keep scrolling down most of the way down until you see (from memory) `Blog Description Font'. Click on that box to activate it and then go to the right and choose a new font and you can change size mas well.

Experiment with a few ``looks'' and don't hit `Save Changes' until you're happy with what you've got.

Then again, if you want to change later, you know exactly how to do it!

Let me know how you go, or if I can help you with any hiccups you might hit.

And when you're done, check out a blogpost called `Shun Sign' posted a few days on my site. I think you might enjoy it if you follow the link.

Take care and be in touch
