The Once and Future Books- The S&L Podcast #43

It’s hot in the Bay Area so we have to keep this episode short before Veronica melts.  And a good thing too or she might have kept adding books! We not only kick off T.H. White’s The Once and Future King but Veronica adds a second book as well.

Terry Pratchett makes his own magic sword with meteoric iron   
   
Politics of storytelling with China Mieville

Book Kickoff

  
The Once and Future King – T. H. White    It was first published in 1958 and is mostly a composite of earlier works written in a period between 1938 and 1941. More from Wikipedia.

Second pick – The Princess Bride    by William Goldman

Love the podcast and the book discussions!  After hearing one of you mention it on one of Leo Laporte’s shows I have gotten back into reading and really enjoy the new kindle also.  I’ve read a few of the previous books, World War Z and Bitter seeds, and they were really good.  I’ll suggest Boneshaker by Cherie Preist.  The story is quite good.  I don’t have a suggestion for a more “sword” focused book so I await the options as there will likely be a few good suggestions.  Keep up the great work!
