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 64: 13 Bullets by David Wellington

Click here to listen.

WARNING: Mea culpa. Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa. The sound on this podcast is truly a horror. We did not know how much havoc the air conditioner would visit upon us. It was the hottest day of the year when we recorded and now we know. Please drink heartily before listening.

The Two Mike's take a shot at David Wellington's 13 Bullets. Are vampires unnatural if they actually exist in nature? Do we really need another lesbian cop in a horror novel? Is there anything left to be resurrected in the vampire genre? These questions and more will probably not be answered in this noise riddled episode.

There is also some bonus blathering about Ayn Rand novels and Mike invokes his powers of divination and makes a prediction about a Harry Potter reboot.

It IS Cocktail Time.

Double Strength Ginger Beer with/or add ginger bits.
2 shots good dark rum.

Get a tall glass loaded with ice, pour in the ginger beer and top off with rum. Garnish with an orange or lemon rind.
