The Rookie’s Guide to H.P. Lovecraft, in 1500 Words or Less

| April 2, 2013 | Reply

If I had to pick a favorite horror author, I’d go with Howard Phillips Lovecraft. His tales of horror, most often set in small-town New England (with the occasional jaunt to the Antarctic, New York City, or The Dreamlands), are enjoyable little morsels of creepiness. Lovecraft was one of several authors such as M.R. James, […]

I have quite a bit of catching up to do on these show posts. Time and tight schedules get us all from time to time and, well, I got gotten good. Episode 167 has a few nifty little riffs, if I do say so myself, on the subject of media bias and how it played […]

Growing Little Patriots Together: How You Can Help Teach Children About America

Lately, there has been a lot of focus on the fact that American kids are not learning American history. Unfortunately, doing something about it doesn’t seem to be a top priority. This could explain a lot of the problems America is facing today. We have an electorate that not only doesn’t understand America but doesn’t […]

If Episode 106 sounds good, you can give most of the credit to SMPMike. The internet connection at The Delivery Broadcast Central was as bad last night as I can remember and we had to contend with several dropped connections and a few sound quality problems. However, SMPMike made everything work out well and the […]

What a wonderful representative for the city of New Orleans former Mayor Ray Nagin turned out to be, huh? Not only did he botch the city’s response before, during, and after Hurrican Katrina about as badly as it could have been botched, but he’s also one heck of a conspiracy theorist. The former mayor of […]

I suppose it was only a matter of time before our own laziness brought down a heretofore timeless classic. What is a word worth? According to Publishers Weekly, NewSouth Books’ upcoming edition of Mark Twain’s seminal novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn will remove all instances of the “n” word—I’ll give you a hint, it’s notnonesuch—present in the […]

Episode 45 is in the can and you’ll want to hear this one if you have ever a sliver of a geek bone in your body. A couple of months ago, Melissa Clouthier was on the show and broached the idea of doing a regular Book Club show. She suggested Terry Pratchett’s Guards! Guards! and […]
