    I listen to this podcast every week. I've found some amazing books, and listened to some great authors. It was a shock when Kim Alexander announced at the end of this episode that this is the last one. What? Where will I hear all these awesome interviews? And get the top ten count down? Amazon, is this your fault?

    A real treat for listeners today, as I sit down with Karen Kondazian, author of the award winning book The Whip, a novel of the old west - plus a chat with actress Robin Weigart, who brings the audiobook to life. Maggie talks with Josh Hanagarne, who dubs himself - and his book - The World’s Strongest Librarian.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Paul Temple and the Geneva Mystery (Dramatized)?

    The entire production was memorable!!


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They bring the story to life for me. I can picture every scene!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Like all mysteries, it was intense and lots of fun! So many red-herrings, I was shocked at who actually did the deed! Love it!!

    Sookie doesn't have that many relations, so she hated to lose one - but of all the people to go, she didn't expect it to be her cousin Hadley, a consort of New Orleans' vampire queen - after all, Hadley was technically already dead. But she is gone, beyond recall, and she's left Sookie an inheritance - one that comes with a bit of a risk - not least because someone doesn't want Sookie digging too deep into Hadley's past - or her possessions.

    The Mighty Boosh is unlike any show you are ever likely to hear, and one that defies description; the closest you could get to the unique style of Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding would be in the early days of Reeves and Mortimer, with their cardboard props and men with sticks.

    Sookie's beginning to get used to being surrounded by all varieties of supernatural beings - but even she has her limits. She'd really like to take a while to get over being betrayed by Bill, her long-time vampire lover, and get used to her new relationship with the sexy shapeshifter Quinn - but instead, she finds herself attending the long-planned vampire summit, the destination of choice for every undead power player around, as a sort-of human 'Geiger counter' for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of Louisiana.
