#9 – The Saturday Night Ghost Club - chapters 1-4

by Craig Davidson

I'm very excited to start a new book! This wasn't entirely intended (influenced only by when I received the book from the library), but The Saturday Night Ghost Club (by Craig Davidson) starts today with episodes 1-4, right when most other people are watching Stranger Things 3 (I've only seen the first season + the first episode of season 2 so far). This is a spooky book, and really good so far. So dive in with me!

The theme music in today's episode is titled "Hor Hor" by composer Alexander Nakarada, and is available under a public domain license.

#7 – Gone - CH 32-39

New information revealed!

Plenty of new information revealed in these chapters, including the cause of The Fayz! Or part of the cause. This is the penultimate episode for Gone coverage, with chapters 39 - Final coming in 2 weeks' time.

Read 'All Our Relations' by Tanya Talaga - it's a really important book that I think everyone needs to read.

#6 – Gone, CH 20-32

We're in the Endgame, now.

After a lengthy delay, a 12-chapter update for Gone, chapters 20-32. Things are really heating up, and if this were a movie we'd be pretty close to the third act by now. There are going to be two more episodes for Gone, before moving on to the next book. Enjoy!

Returning to Gone (Michael Grant) this week with chapters 10-12. There's a lot of new information learned in these 3 chapters. Also, this is really a slow-read. Also in this episode: re-reading Dune alongside the Dune Subreddit.

#2 – Erebos

by Ursula Pozlanski, translated by Judith Pattinson

Book two of The Slow Reader: Erebos, written by Ursula Poznanski and translated by Judith Pattinson.

"It's a game. It watches you." Intriguing tag line that lead to another fun, quick read from the library.

Also discussed the podcast "Wild Thing", which you can find at https://www.foxtopus.ink/wildthing

#1 – Thrawn: Alliances

by Timothy Zahn

The first book covered for The Slow Reader: Thrawn: Alliances by Timothy Zahn. In this episode I talk briefly about the sequel to Zahn's 2017 novel, and talk a tiny bit also about Star Trek: Discovery.

This is a short episode, but hopefully future episodes will be a little bit more in depth and a little bit longer. This book has been read in full, so as to get a head start.
