India, Josh, Peter, and AJ are reading The Malazan Book of the Fallen. A bad idea? Maybe, but we'll at least have fun along the way. Peter has read the series before, but it's Josh, India, and AJ's first time. Join us, as we talk through each book and enjoy the works of Steven Erikson.

Memories of Ice - The Spark and the Ashes - Part 1 (https%3A%2F%2Fd3ctxlq1ktw2nl.cloudfront.net%2Fproduction%2F2020-1-21%2F51527336-44100-1-f227be1d9139e.mp3)

Memories of Ice is upon us! 

We catch up with the Bridgeburners and learn more about the Pannion Domin as we return to Genabackis. Peter botches it by referring to Draconus as Tiam, India is vibing with the Girls, and Josh kicks up some Young Sheldon comparisons. Everybody is feeling it as we start the new book, so let's GenaBack to it. 

--- Chapters covered - Prologue, 1, 2, 3 ---

This week we welcome back friend of the show Steven Erikson. 

We talked about writing on the birth of a religion, Steve teases a bit more about the God is Not Willing, and he reveals the origin of Seven Cities' bloodflies. It was great having the chance to speak with Steve again, we hope you enjoy the conversation!

Willful Child (https%3A%2F%2Fd3ctxlq1ktw2nl.cloudfront.net%2Fstaging%2F2020-1-7%2F47138187-44100-2-828923811ae41.m4a)

On this episode, we bravely go where the podcast has not gone before. Out of the Malazan Book of the Fallen and into Steven Erikson's satirical science fiction novel Willfull Child.

Join us, as we discuss our favorite episodes in the book, Erikson's writing outside of Malazan, and the many Star Trek Easter Eggs laid throughout.

Thanks again to Nate for coming on the show.

Deadhouse Gates - Spoiler-cast (https%3A%2F%2Fd3ctxlq1ktw2nl.cloudfront.net%2Fproduction%2F2020-0-31%2F46036518-44100-1-4f933974215df.mp3)

SPOILERS ABOUND: This podcast discusses plot points throughout the main series, you've been warned.

Rounding out our read through, Peter had special guest Tommy on the show to talk about what they noticed on rereads, what draws them to Malazan, and we tried to hone in on just Deadhouse Gates.

Tommy (@SonAnomander) has made companion guides to GoTM, DG, and MoI. Links below:

DG: http://bit.ly/MalazanDGGuide

MoI: http://bit.ly/MalazanMoIGuide

It was great having him on the show, we hope you enjoy the talk.

Things are ramping up as we near the end of Deadhouse Gates. Peter defends Felisin, Josh wants to live a pirate's life, and India can't get enough of Icarium. 

Also apologies to the Baha Men, I got their name wrong like a dozen times.
