A formerly monthly podcast devoted mostly to speculative fiction books, reviews and the odd bit of idle gossip. Hosted by Kirstyn McDermott and Ian Mond.

Customer Reviews

Great podcast

I love Ian and Kirstyn's thoughts on books - the format of recommending a book to each other is great.

Lots of fun

Mondy and Kirstyn recommend a book to each other and then discuss it in great spoiler-y detail in this monthly podcast. They know each other exceptionally well, so even if you haven't and don't intend to read the books, the banter is very entertaining. That said, their discussion of (mostly) speculative fiction novels is incisive and interesting... especially when they have completely different opinions about the same book...

Amusing and insightful

Ian and Kirstyn regularly have me laughing, and yet they always manage to be insightful about the books they read and review.

I'm making the effort to read everything they review, and I've picked up some books that I've thoroughly enjoyed (many of which I wouldn't have picked up otherwise).

Though I do maintain that Ian's reading of City and the City is a valid one (as is Kirstyn's, of course).
