The X&HT Speakeasy: Literary Edition

Hoorah! Clive and I have been working hard on our next chunk of podcasty goodness, and here it is for you, you lucky Listenership.

In June’s Literary Edition of the Speakeasy, we look at Chris Beckett’s Arthur. C. Clarke-award winning novel, Dark Eden. We consider the ups, downs and sideways of self-publishing, and Rob shamelessly plugs all his works. And of course, we have recommendations for you of fun stuff to read, particularly if you’re into story theory or the confessions of a tabloid journalist.

Recorded in a proper, top-end studio, with over 100 “ums”, “ers” “you knows” and uncomfortable silences edited out, this is the most professional-sounding Speakeasy yet! How can you possibly resist? Plug in your headphones and let Clive and I whisper sweet nothings deep into your earholes.
