Laser Bulge Versus Sexy Voodoo – Literary Loitering 107

Laser Bulge Versus Sexy Voodoo – Literary Loitering 107

We kick things off this week with an excerpt from the 1960s sci-fi novel Agent of Chaos by Norman Spinrad, which has a “hero” with a remarkably familiar name …

Other discoveries this week include some very off books written by candidate for the nomination for the candidacy to become U.S. President Marianne Williamson, the rumour of the possibility of a children’s book that Meghan Markle may be thinking about writing, the fact that Donald Trump Jr. has written a book, the defence of the bizarre Cats trailer by the T. S. Eliot estate, and a village game that involves hiding books from children.

After all that business is over, Rob rather appropriately ends the show with Wastelands: The New Apocalypse – an anthology of post-apocalyptic shorts stories edited by John Joseph Adams.

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.
