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 142: John Blackburn's Our Lady of Pain

We bid a failed farewell to the late John Blackburn, failing to love his quirky, British, weird amalgam of SF, horror, and thriller ingredients.  We'll not be reading any more. But we did read these three.

It's Cocktail Time!

Our Lady of Pain(killer)

In a shaker of ice, mix:
  • 4 parts fresh-squeezed pineapple juice
  • 1 part fresh-squeezed blood orange juice
  • 1 part coconut cream
  • 1 (or 4?) parts coconut rum (like Malibu)
  • shake or two of cinnamon and/or nutmeg
Strain into tumbler of ice. Garnish with pineapple slice, sprig of mint, and shake of cinnamon. Chin chin!
