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.

Take a stab in the dark with America's huggable serial killer in the first three books of the Dexter series by Jeff Lindsay. This is a very special** out-of-sequence episode brought to you from the future for your summer listening pleasure.

The Mikes enter the mind of a killer and, like good traditional men, drink the summer away. They battle over the presence of dark gods in the third book and end up with a little blood on their hands but, hey, that's what beer is for. Who's right? Mike is.

** Confession: the real episode The M.D. by Thomas Disch is lost somewhere deepin the bowels of the dank thing in the basement of the Forbidden Books Group studio. We are diligently pouring gallons of Syrup of Ipecac down its throat in hopes that it will be spewed forth—and when it does, you will hear it, right here, on Necronomipod.


Beer on the Couch

1 cold can Miller Lite, Bud, or even Hamm's
A bottle of Jack Daniels

Pop the can, take one manly gulp, while the Little Missus is making you some Tater-Tots®, refill the can to the top with Jack and gently swirl. Sit on the couch and watch an episode of Two and a Half Men with your hand down your pants.
