Books on the Nightstand published our final episode in July 2016. This is a place for listeners to find old episodes. 

I'm sorry that we don't have show notes for all of the episodes, and that the episodes do not have consistent filenames. Still, we hope you find that the content is valuable enough to overlook those annoyances.

Thank you to all who have listened to BOTNS over the years and for those who are just discovering the podcast.

While this is not a Halloween episode, we take advantage of the season to talk horror. The horror category has evolved from the types of books that we read as teenagers, and in fact many books that would be considered "horror" can now be found in the general fiction section at your local bookstore.

We tell you about 5 books that can be considered "the new horror," including two that we've blogged about in the past.

And as always, two new books that we can't wait for you to read. Michael tells you about The Alcoholic by Jonathan Ames, while I go on about Doomed Queens by Kris Waldherr. Doomed Queens is a very visual book, and just listening to me talk about it does not give you a sense of the experience.
