Literary Loitering 85 – Middle-Class Oedipus Rex

Literary Loitering 85 – Middle-Class Oedipus Rex

An annual, grandiose and symbolic event is upon us once again, but before we get into all of that we find out that domestic dramas are apparently crowding out traditional fantasy fiction in children’s books. It’s then time for a long-haul art vandal in the family, fake terrorist movie promotions, and the rising threat of political correctness to the great British double entendre.

After that it’s time for a journey of discovery as Andrew takes Graham and Producer Rob 50 million years forward in time with After Man: A Zoology of the Future by Dougal Dixon.

Rounding things off is the flamboyant cavalcade of sequins, political shenanigans, lucky cats, cultural appropriation, frills, bad ideas, awful pop music and derisive commentary that can only be the Eurovision Song Contest.

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.

Let us know what you think ...
