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.

Shake and strain into a martini glass.

Very illuminating. Thanks for this one. Sent me browsing for Kosinski info on the web. One sick dude.

I recall he used to challenge friends to come over to his apartment and find him. He'd hide himself so well they couldn't. Small man, used to hiding.

God knows what demons flew around inside his skull.
