Michael Scott stops in to talk about his newest novel The Sorceress, the third book in his Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. In case you’ve never heard of Nicholas Flamel, he was a real 14th century bookseller and alchemist who was rumored to have discovered the philosopher’s stone, alluded to in the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Also in this show, literary agent and writing coach Scott Edelstein is in the studio to take us well into the 21st century. He talks about how the web is dramatically changing book publishing, the role of print on demand and self-publishing, and of course Kindle. And he and Michael Scott engage in a little debate over the possibility that big box discount stores will sell bestselling novels below cost.

It’s Skalloween again, and the Cap’n ‘n’ Cozy lift the veil between the universes because it’s time to get SKA-ry! A great all-oldie-moldie first hour, complete with a she-Dracula, a spider, a fly, and various zombies guaranteed to put the bump in your night! Hour 2 kicks off with the bewitching avant-Gamelanisms of Harry Partch (from The Bewitched) and then careens into everything from voodoo men to Hell’s Bells to King Kong. The 4-at-4 is all mummies, including two back-to-back from the same Bad Manners album, an entirely different flavor of Lollipop this week (not even the same song!), plus vampires, Scooby Doo, and the Werewolves of London a la David Lindley. Aah-WHOOOOOOO!!!
