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 51: Dracula Undead by Dacre Stoker w/Ian Holt

You can't keep a good vamp down and that is the case in this sequel to Bram Stoker's original Dracula. His great-grandnephew keeps up the family tradition, and the Two Mike's enjoy participating in this unholy resurrection. Once you go Drac you never go back.

It IS Cocktail Time!

The Blood Countess

1.5 shots of Domaine de Canton
1 shot of Campari
1 shot Dry Vermouth
.5 shot of Gin

Mix and pour over ice. Garnish with candied ginger or orange wedge. Chin, chin.

Nice to hear you actually liked the chosen book, for once. It seems like there have been a fair number of duds lately.

I listened some time ago, but does the book make clear how extensive Bram Stoker's notes were?

Hey, a nice cover for a paperback edition of We Have Always Lived in the Castle. said...

I agree. We've been picking dogs lately, but that's gonna change. Hang in there.

I guess I didn't know that Stoker left extensive notes for a sequel. Are they published? I'm curious how closely Dacre's novel hews to his forebear's outline.

Thanks for listening!
