Episode 238: A Hannibal Playlist
This week, it's all about operatic violence and questionable dining choices, and the duo put together a reading playlist based on Bryan Fuller's masterpiece television series Hannibal. It's a daunting task, as Fuller maintains his reputation for uniquely dazzling visuals and over-the-top plotting. Josh looks at authors like Clive Barker and Robert Pobi, who took horror to levels never seen before with writing that dazzled as much as it generated nightmares. Dietrich discusses the spectacular villains of the Charlie Parker series that woke him in the middle of the night, and the stark beauty and eerie bloodshed of From Hell. In addition, Dietrich is impressed at author Dennis E Taylor's shift from lighter fare to a dark dystopian novel, Josh raves about a novel involving body switching, and they discuss the joy of the newest fantasy novel to capture their attention. Finally, they wrap up with two good shows and two spectacular ones. You can send questions or comments to email@example.com.
