Booked. is an award-winning literary podcast. To celebrate reaching the 100 episode milestone, we compiled an anthology of stories written by authors we’d had on the podcast. This excellent collection is the result.
From the book:
Booked. They’ve traveled the country tirelessly for two years, with stops in Chicago, St. Louis, Boston, Milwaukee, L.A., North Korea, The Dark Side of the Moon, and damn near every Waffle House along the way, all in order to bring you, the listener, over 150 episodes, over 75 authors. They’ve won awards, covered scoops, scandals, archived hours of authors acting badly. They’ve broken a few hearts on this journey – their voices can be like Russian Roulette in the headphones of the unsuspecting – but now they’ve called in their markers to leave their own stain on the literary landscape. And you’re holding it in your hands, or your hook, which would probably tear the hell out of lesser books. But not this one. All original stories, multiple genres, never been seen, never been read. It’s their way of giving back. Although these authors probably consider it more like theft. The Booked. Anthology. There’s a period in the middle because it’s that serious to say it out loud.
