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.

click to listen

We've put it off too long.
After joking and cajoling and threatening for two years, we've finally gotten up the nerve to read and wrestle with House of Leaves. Much to our surprise, we found we both could read it, finish it, and more or less agree about its merits and flaws. Who woulda guessed?

It's Cocktail Time!

The Dead Blind Zampanò Cocktail

1 shot Kahlua
2 shots (house) vodka
1 Amaretto

Shake with ice; strain into glass. Garnish with white maraschino cherry.

Special closing music: "I Was in the House When the House Burned Down" by Warren Zevon
