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 28: Thomas Disch's The M.D.

Click here to listen

The Mikes go back to the future and finally post their discussion of one of the late great Thomas Disch's horror novels set in a place not unlike Doppeltown, USA. We ponder prepubescent morality, Faustian bargains, catastrophic tooth decay, and comeuppance in general.

It's Cocktail Time!

Doctor's Orders

In a shotglass pour
1 teaspoon of Chartreuse

Hold your nose and shoot it down. You'll feel better in the morning.
