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 129: Tim Powers's Declare

The Mikes go deep undercover and play both sides in a battle to discover the merits of Tim Powers's Cold War/Arabian Nights novel of intrigue and lots and lots of gin/djinn.

It's Cocktail Time!

Spirits of the Air

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour
  • 1 shot British gin
  • 1/2 shot apple juice (not cider)
  • 1/2 shot lemon juice
  • 1/4 shot orgeat
Shake and strain into coupe glass. Float a bit of prosecco on top, along with a dash of Angostura bitters. Garnish with a mint leaf. Take flight.
