More Reading About People Reading—The “Dragonriders of Pern” Reread

I apologize for not having posted for a couple of weeks. I’ve been suffering from some anxiety and it’s prevented me from consuming any new media. I saw my doctor and got some medication and that’s helped, so I should have a real post for you next week.

Meantime, over on Tor.com, Mari Ness has started a new Reread (I linked to some of her other stuff earlier), Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series. Check out her commentary, it’s fun.

Shedunnit by Caroline Crampton

Shedunnit, by Caroline Crampton, is a podcast about the stories behind the Golden Age of mystery stories and detective novels, which took place in the Interwar period . The podcast goes into the lives and histories of the authors themselves, as well as surrounding events, social climates, themes, etc. that shaped the Cozy Mystery .

With each episode coming in at around twenty minutes, and a list of books mentioned, each topic gets a nice introduction and some exploration while still leaving plenty to suss out if a particular topic takes your fancy.
