Literary Loitering 41 – The Siege Weapons of Outrageous Fortune

This week we get off to a steamy start with the launch of the Literary Hub’s prize for the “best erotic passage” (this is not a joke), before we discuss the discovery of Shakespeare’s first Folio and a molecular version of The Origin of Species. We also have a quiz about stage directions.

Our featured books are Powers: The Secret History of Deena Pilgrim by Brian Michael Bendis & Neil Kleid, and The Shakespeare Book (part of the Big Ideas series).

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
