#bookcast2019
blurb

Sometimes we need stories of people in a huge universe to focus on the small, everyday things that make us human.

If you like the stories of Festus traveling the universe in Startripper having fun adventures with new cultures, you should give the Wayfarers series by Becky Chambers a shot.

Fascinating world building, feel-good stories paired with serious stories with more intimate stakes than the whole universe.

rwmg I'm doing this backwards. Is liking Becky Chambers's books a reason to read Star Stripper. And can you link to the book please? I suspect googling it is asking for trouble. 4mo
chaoticgoodhufflepuff @rwmg Startripper is a fun audio drama podcast. https://www.whisperforge.org/startripper This post is kind of supposed to work both ways as a recommendation. If you‘ve enjoyed one, I think you‘ll enjoy the other. I listen to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks at work, and I‘ve been sharing books that I felt pair up nicely with the podcasts. 4mo

Six Wakes | Mur Lafferty

A group of clones with memory problems have to solve the mystery of what‘s happened to them all while dealing with a sometimes helpful, sometimes really, REALLY not helpful AI.

Is this the plot to amazing post-apocalyptic podcast Project Nova? Yes, but it is also the outline for equally amazing space mystery book Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty.

Both stories are fascinating, twisty mysteries, and worth a listen!

First #bookcast2019 post!

Do you like the fantasy shenanigans of TAZ Balance? What about the nods to the 4th wall and the intertwining of the real world and the fantasy? Silliness and fun, yet paired with emotional depth of characters?

Do I have the book for you! Well, series, really.

"Swords, Sorcery, and Stealth" by Drew Hayes, currently at four books, checks all these boxes and has a fantastic narrator to boot!

Working as a data conversion operator means that, 40 to 60 hours a week, it's me, the computer, and my iPod. So, I've listened to a lot of stuff. Like, a lot a lot.

So I thought this year, I'd try something.

I'll recommend a book that made me think of a podcast I've enjoyed. It may be because of characters, setting, or theme.

I've got a few planned, so through the year I'll post and tag it #bookcast2019. I hope y'all find something new to try!
