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 33, Nicholas Pekearo's The Wolf MAn

The Mikes talk about author Pekearo's auspicious literary debut and tragic end. We also ponder the history of werewolf literature.

It's cocktail time!

Very easy this week: buy a bottle of Zombie Zin. Drink it.

Special closing music: "Lone Wolf" by the Lone Wolves

One of your better efforts. How sad that this promising writer died so young -- and heroically, yet.

A list of character names (so you're not forced to use appellations such as "the guy" and "his friend" would be a useful crib note for these discussions.

Also, why not read an exerpt or two? Give us a flavor of the prose.

Enjoying your talks quite a bit, though I disagree on Hodgson -- that pseudo-biblical prose style of _The Night Land_ is a great distancing technique and added to the singular strangeness of that work. said...

Some good ideas but that would mean that we would need to be organized. We will take it under advisement. Thanks for listening - tell us who you are.
