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 138: Michael Talbot's The Bog

The Mikes get their hands dirty and moist digging into Michael Talbot's second novel. We learn about what bog tannins can do to human remains (preserve them) and what hanging out with a demon can do to a sorcerer (preserve them). 

It's Cocktail time!

The Bog Body

In a cocktail shaker, combine:
  • 1 1/2 shots scotch (something peaty)
  • 1 shot Mirto liqueur (myrtle liqueur)
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • sprig of crushed fresh thyme
Shake with ice and pour into a tumbler of ice. 
Fill glass with ginger beer and garnish with lemon slice.
