BSG #86: We Never Talk About Vampires / Vampires of El Norte

Listen, we NEVER talk about vampires on this podcast, and we’re not gonna do it today. Just kidding; yes we are. In our discussion of Vampires of El Norte by Isabel Cañas, we also talk about romance, historical fiction, cover design, and the fact that westerns have to have a hot person for anyone on the squad to be interested. Next we get into some listener feedback and catch up with what’s on the blog (yes, we still have that!). On our next Othersode on 11/14, we’ll be talking about Sofia Coppola’s new movie, Priscilla. After that we’ll be reading Camp Damascus by Chuck Tingle on our 11/28 Bookpisode. You should read along!
