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 49, Peter Straub's Lost, Boy Lost Girl

If you are into screwing ghosts, you'll dig Peter Straub's Lost Boy, Lost Girl. One Mike loves its labyrinthine gestalt and Milwaukee sensibility. The other Mike says it only made him crave Leon's Frozen Custard and Balistrieri's Pizza. They both end with an Ode to Milwaukee.

It's Cocktail Time.
The Schiltz Your Wrist and Pabst Your Bottom.

Take one tall glass of ice and fill with
1 /4 Milwaukee beer like Schlitz, Miller, Pabst, or even Blatz
1/4 of Amaretto
and 1/2 of Pick-n-Save brand OJ.

Stir, enjoy and then head over to Ma Fischer's for breakfast all day.
