All the Books Show: Episode 99- Unfinished Business

This week’s episode we discuss the great, unfinished works of literature. Not posthumous releases mind you, but books that were simply not finished before the author died. So, yes, still posthumous releases, but not…LOOK. You always do this!

edwindroodcoverusAs I say on the show, I don’t think it’s a big issue to release unfinished work after the artist himself has passed on. Academically, I think it’s interesting to see what could have been. And no one ever questions if we should collect unfinished CDs or music from bands or singers after they leave. I mean, they keep trying to put out new Beatles records.

But you might disagree, so let me know know and I’ll tell Nic and then we’ll tell you on the podcast. It’s a cycle and you’re the most important raindrop in it. Let us evaporate your thoughts. Also, I hope you understand the water cycle or that was all nonsense.

All the Books Show: Episode 92 – Dragon Teeth

This episode we talk about Michael Crichton’s newest posthumous release, Dragon Teeth. We also talk about your other favorite Crichton posthumous releases, Micro and Pirate Latitudes. And then things get away from us as we imagine the Lizard sharing clothes with the Hulk.

Needless to say, I find more reasons to talk about Jurassic Park. And if anyone thinks that the Timeline movie is better than The Lost World: Jurassic Park, let me know because I will physically fight you outside the location of your choice.

dragonteeth-cover-liveI reviewed Dragon Teeth here on the blog, so if you want something a little more detailed, check it out. A quick summary is that I enjoyed having a new Crichton book, but it’s not a fantastic story. If I had to rate the books released after Crichton’s death, I would pick Micro, Dragon Teeth and then Pirate Latitudes. And Micro seems a little unfair because it was actually intended to be released. I’ll read anything they find on Crichton’s computer, but I don’t think we need to any more.
