BotNS on Alzabo Soup

If you haven’t yet heard, the guys at Alzabo Soup are pointing the attention of their podcast at Gene Wolfe’s The Book of The New Sun. It sounds like they’ve put a lot of work into planning this one and it’s quite exciting to see it come to fruition for them. I’ll be tuning in for sure as their dive into other books have been both insightful and entertaining.


Alzabo Soup Podcast

I’ve recently started listening to a new Wolfe themed podcast called Alzabo Soup that I’ve found both enjoyable and insightful. The hosts of the show, (Phillip and Andrew) keep the show light-hearted and fun while diving deep into their interpretations of Wolfe’s work. Currently, they’re covering one of my own personal favorites, “The Sorcerer’s House,” so it’s been a personal treat to hear what they’ve come up with.

It’s always exciting to see other people not just enjoying Wolfe’s work but giving back to the community of Wolfe fans out there. If you’re a fellow Wolfe fan then definitely give them a listen. Pick up a copy of “The Sorcerer’s House” if you haven’t already read it and follow along, emailing your own ideas and interpretations to them. It’s good to see these kinds of projects out there and definitely worth supporting.

New Gene Wolfe Podcast and Forum

A couple of new things to share today.  First off is a Between the Cover Podcast interview with Gene Wolfe.  The interview is done by John J. Miller and is, as almost every interview with Mr. Wolfe, an insightful one that glimpses into his life and personal interests.  

The other item of interest is a new forum called “Useful Phrases” that is dedicated entirely to discussing Gene Wolfe’s work and life.  It’s always great to see new additions to the Gene Wolfe online community.  If you want to be involved simply go to the site, make a quick account and start posting.  

Both of these sites have added to the new Hoof & Hide repository of links.  Very soon I’ll have some new updates involving the resources page and upcoming Twitter updates!
