This month on The Writer and the Critic your hosts, Kirstyn McDermott and Ian Mond, have decided to start with a handful of pocket reviews for books which they have recently read but which may not end up being given the full podcast treatment. Or maybe they will. No spoilers for these right now, though, just some hearty recommendations:
- Two Worlds and in Between: The Best of Caitlin R. Kiernan, (Volume One) by Caitlín R. Kiernan (Subterranean Press)
- The Gist by Michael Marshall Smith (Subterranean Press)
- Trucksong by Andrew Macrae (Twelfth Planet Press)
- Five Autobiographies and a Fiction by Lucius Shepard (Subterranean Press)
- Martian Sands by Lavie Tidhar (PS Publishing)
Here are the links for reviews and articles mentioned during the discussion:
- NOS4R2 reviewed by Jeff VanderMeer at The Guardian
- Sister Mine reviewed by Na'amen Gobert Tilahun at i09
- Sister Mine reviewed by Jessica Langer at LA Review of Books
If you've skipped ahead to avoid spoilers, then it's safe to come back at 1:17:20 for final remarks.
For next month -- and it will be NEXT month! -- Ian has recommended A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki, while Kirstyn has chosen to discuss Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Read ahead and join in the spoilerific fun!
