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 99: Gene Wolfe's Peace

The Mikes at last turn to a book that's been sitting on the pile for almost seven years. Now, in our ninety-ninth episode, we finally read it. Twice. We find a lovely, subtle, and ultimately creepy tale of small-town life, and we suspect the main story exists in what is not written in the book.

It's Libation Time!

No Rest for the Wicked

In a Tom Collins glass filled with ice cubes mix:

2 oz. rye whisky
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. strong Earl Grey tea (cold)

Garnish with a lemon slice and enjoy, while thinking about what you have done. You know what I'm talking about.
