Welcome back to The Nerd Blitz Book Club! In this 1st of a 2 part series, we are celebrating the upcoming release of the new Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. short story collection, Services Rendered, by reading and discussing the 1st 3 chapters of the short story Role Model written by Kevin J. Anderson.
We dissect the detail that only a true fan of all things nerd could understand and nail, monsters and their rules are debated, jokes are made, and fun is had, gang.
So grab a copy of this story, available in the Working Stiff short story collection, and join us in the Unnatural Quarter for this fun read.
In this episode, the fellas get a little loose after Doom gives Fitz some harsh alien head.
After the glass shatters, Fitz cracks the show off with a story about a dead guy, they get boozy, and then they talk about Rian Johnson’s just announced (at the time of recording, WE KNOW!!!) new stand alone Star Wars Trilogy, and they touch on the Disney/Fox deal falling through (back when it did, WE KNOW!!!).
Somehow Doom compares Star Trek to a Wizard Of OZ/Tom & Jerry crossover movie before they dive in deep and try to figure out just what the live-action Star Wars show could be.
All that and so much more in this short, but dense episode!
In this episode, the fellas get ghetto again as Fitz tries to go large scale and it turns out rinky dink!
After a rapid fire session of Joke Corner, Doom curls up at Fitz’s feet and chews his squeak toy while Fitz regales him with tales of a big con gone wrong. Be prepared to get sad and/or depressed as the story unfolds.
Then they get all Star Warsy again as they break some Rebels news…3 months later and Mr. Fitz watches the trailer for season 4 as they talk.
All that and more as Horton Hears A Huh in this record setting episode!
