This time, Seth is joined by his high school friend Josh Medsker, who connected him with Justin Bacolo, creator of Fathom Press. The discussion is more about the project than about any particular title. Links:

And now for something completely different. Science Fiction isn’t really on the menu this time. Instead, Seth is joined by Nicholas Buccola to discuss his fantastic book The Fire Is Upon Us: James Baldwin, William F. Buckley, Jr., and the Debate Over Race in America. We also discuss where to start with James Baldwin’s writing. He’s an important voice that Seth regrets only discovering this year.

Mandy Self joins Seth again to discuss her comfort reading, which is Garth Nix’s Abhorsen series, starting with Sabriel. By their very nature, these episodes contain some light spoilers, and we don’t really have a non-spoiler discussion section, so be aware of that. Mandy’s Social Media:

It’s the Hugos There / Take Me To Your Reader crossover no one asked for, but we’re doing it anyway! Fritz Lieber’s 1944 Retro Hugo Winner, Conjure Wife, was adapted into three films, so it made sense to kill four birds with one stone. This is a non-standard episode, and as such, there’s no non-spoiler section. This is the same content as was posted in the TMTYR feed.
