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 97: Caitlin R. Kiernan's The Drowning Girl

The Mikes Who Number Two gather at 7pm to assemble the fragments of their failing knowledge and piece together a semblance of understanding of Caitlin R. Kiernan's critically acclaimed novel. We dive in and end up all wet and partially devoured.

Cocktail Time!

  •     In an ice-filled tumbler (T-U-M-B-L-E-R = 7 letters) pour:
  •     2 shots Seagram's 7 (S-E-A-G-R-A-M = 7 letters and which has 7 crowns on its label)
  •     Fill with 7-UP (numeral seven, and spelled out: S-E-V-E-N-U-P = 7 letters. Coincidence?)
  •     Add a dash of gin (which starts with the letter G: seventh letter in the alphabet).

Stir and contemplate the striking power of the number seven in your life and in the world. Then take your meds, cuz you're kinda losing it.

Chin chin chin chin chin chin chin.
