I never could sleep growing up. A lot can go through a kid’s mind laying there, waiting for papa to drag his bum foot across my dirty bedroom floor. Mama’d wasn’t much of a cleaner. Two years a coat-check girl on Music Row and you couldn’t convince her she wudn’t Loretta Lynn. Papa’s plant wasn’t […]

Driving home in your car after the end of the baseball game. Oh, wait. That’s baseball. Tune in for Genre Stop!’s long-awaited thirteenth episode, as Bri and Scott […]

Ted was going to end it all. He took $400 out of an ATM and started walking toward the gorge. He passed a video store on the way. He realized that he hadn’t seen Tank Girl in a couple decades. They had a copy. On the way home he bought an old VHS player from […]

This is a true story. In the ‘20’s I ran rum for some unsavory characters. I rode a bit too high on what Abigail Adams dubbed the ‘petrol pony.’ Fast cars. Fast girls. Fast times. Turns out, I’d borrowed money from the wrong cat. Al Capone! Uh-oh. One day, he shows up at Ma’s still, […]

Nothing like a good human v. nature novel to get the blood flowin.’ And, oh-wee boy, have we got a good one for you in Andy Weir’s debut novel! He starts from a simple premise: how long could you survive, stranded in a marsh? If you’re like me, man, not very long! I mean, I […]

We needed something special this week. Not just your run-of-the-mill epic, with the same bland political intrigue, the same conniving highborn jetsetters, and the same Clausewitzian martial maneuvering. Something special. What we needed was a run-of-the-mill epic, with the same bland political intrigue, the same conniving highborn jetsetters, and the same Clausewitzian martial maneuvering that […]

What has numerous squid-like appendages, a blind devotion to satiating its evolutionary needs, and negligible levels of sentience? If you said Stephen Markley, Genre Stop!’s first-ever guest host, you’re right! We also would have accepted ‘that strange alien antagonist in Peter Watts’s Blindsight,’ the book at the center of the newest episode. Oh well. Join […]

What do scheming wizards, all-powerful rings, and a world populated by elves, hobbits, and trolls all have in common? All of these words can describe The Lord of the Rings. We read a book about vampires called Agyar, though. Tune in to this week’s Genre Stop!, as Bri and Scott tussle over a slim book […]

Ugh, another book about goblin kings? Bor-ring. At this point, you’d think the market’s a bit over-saturated. If I have to read one more word about goblin duchies… What’s that? The goblin EMPEROR? We’re in! In Genre Stop!’s fifth episode, Bri and Scott put that old saw to the test: power corrupts, absolute power goblin […]

Gunnar? Kentavious? Sheryl? Fww-wooooo? All of these candidates and more vie for the title of “Name of the Wind” in Patrick Rothfuss’ 2007 epic fantasy. Which will it be? In this episode of Genre Stop!, Bri and Scott power through 700 pages of ‘no-really-I-swear-this-isn’t-Hogwarts’ wizarding campus novel to spoil the answer. Along the way, they […]

You know, if you think about it, it’s like, are gods controlling us man, or are we controlling the gods? Whoa. In Genre Stop’s third episode, Bri and Scott finally address their podcast’s growing gender disparity and review a book by a dude. Their discussion of Robert Jackson Bennett’s “City of Stairs” touches on anachronistic […]

Someone call Judith Butler. We’ve got gender trouble. Bri and Scott keep their seats on that Ann-train in Genre Stop’s second episode, as they discuss Ann Leckie’s “Ancillary Justice.” Along the way, they ponder the correct pronunciation of alien names, the appeal of an ungloved hand, and the difficulty of marking a spaceship’s gender.

In this inaugural episode, Bri and Scott introduce the podcast, (try to) define what ‘genre fiction’ means to them, and consider their histories with the label. They conclude with a discussion of the decades-old dragon-riding space romp that almost derailed the podcast before it even got started.
