All the Books Show: Episode 228 – 2020 Page to Screen Adaptations

On this episode of the All the Books Show, we check out the page to screen adaptations coming in 2020!

I gotta say, so far, with only what we know now, it looks like a week year. Nic keeps asking me if I’m exciting and, aside from worrying he’s losing his memory at an exponential rate, I keep telling him there’s nothing I’m really jumping up and down to see. Wonder Woman 1984 is it, but I’ve been tricked by awesome trailers before (heres looking at you Godzilla: King of Monsters).

All the Books Show: Episode 226 – Christmas Book Club II

In this episode of the All the Books Show, we return to the horrible concept of a holiday book club.

All I asked for was a book about a horse. Why I was given a soul crushing novella about a little girl who can’t afford mittens is beyond me. Nic get’s a book about a horned up firefighter and Beau gets southern ghosts. Mine is a book about a girl digging up dead grass for a pony that will never come.

All the Books Show: Episode 225 – Interview with Alan Dean Foster

In this episode of the All the Books Show, we interview author Alan Dean Foster!

As prolific at they come, Foster has written many original stories, such as Icerigger. And, of course, if you’ve read a movie novelization, there’s a good chance you’ve read Alan Dean Foster.

We talk to him about his early work, about Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, his Star Trek work, his many other novelizations and works and what’s next.

All the Books Show: Episode 224 – Goodreads Choice Awards 2019

Oh, hey, it’s the Goodreads Choice Awards! Getting less important every year!

I like a good book award. More than something like the Oscars. But, this award is outliving it’s usefulness. Look, if you voted for The Institute by Stephen King as best horror, you were wrong and wrong to do so. Outside of that book being one of my least favorite reads in a while, it’s in no way horror. Scifi-lite, but not horor.

These awards are really starting to feel like, “Oh, I know that name, sure, I’ll vote…CLICK!” and that means I have less and less time for them each year.

Anyway, we talk the winners.

All the Books Show: Episode 223 – Favorite Books of the Decade

It’s already been a decade? Wait, from when? Why don’t we do this every year? Anniversary things like this are dumb, why do we do them? Who cares how old The Matrix is. Ramble, ramble, ramble…

The point is, we talk about our favorite books of the decade. Not the most important books and all that. Literally the books we liked from the decade. Which means your favorite books didn’t make it! Maybe next decade!

Decade. That would be a cool name, right? “Hello, my name is Officer Jacobs and this is my partner, Decade. He’s the best there is at Robocide cases like this and we’re going to find out who deleted your husband.”

All the Books Show: Interview with Michael Nesmith

In this episode, Nic interviews Michael Nesmith, legendary member of the Monkees, about his novel, The Long Sandy Hair of Neftoon Zamora!

It’s a great interview and Nesmith and a compelling listen. If you haven’t read his book, go join his book club over at his Facebook page!

All the Books Show: Episode 129 – All the Books Anticipation 2018!

This episode, we talk about the adult books coming out in 2018. But, we still have the excitement of young readers. You got to feel young to stay young, you know?

Lots of books coming out this year, but not a lot catching me eye. On the podcast, I point out that I’m never very up-to-date on books released during the year. Sometimes, if something really grabs my attention, like The Girls or Exit West, I’ll give in. But, it’s rare.

Anything you’re looking forward to? Let me know, and maybe you convince me to be excited too!

All the Books Show: Episode 128 – YA Book Anticipation 2018!

2018 is a new year with new possibilities! Like books!

Normally, Nic and I will do one episode covering the most anticipated books of the year. This year, however, there seemed to be too many to cover in just one episode. So, we split it up and here’s our look at the young adult books coming to shelves this year.

My most anticipated is the YA Jurassic World prequel novel about Claire and her rebuilding the park. That’s the only book I want to read this year.

All the Books Show: Episode 127 – Edgar Awards 2018

Second catch up post! It’s about mysteries!

Speaking of mysteries, someone on Twitter refered to me as a clever clogs. Apparenly, it’s an “UK informal disapproving someone who shows that they are clever, in a way that annoys other people.” What that has to do with mysteries, or the Edgar Awards, which are given to mysteries, I don’t know. Why’d you bring it up?
