Every month (or so), Tenebrous Kate and Jack Guignol cover the weirdest, kinkiest, and most outrageous fiction they can unearth.

 
Jul 4, 2017

Author, activist, and academic China Miéville is a luminary in the world of fantasy fiction, creating complex and magical worlds that challenge the traditional "sword and sorcery" of years past. In his 2016 novella The Last Days of New Paris, Miéville conjures up an alternate history version of WWII Paris in which Resistance members use surrealist art to battle Nazi demonologists. 

Will the author successfully pack all of his big ideas into the slender novella format? How many advanced degrees should a reader be expected to have in order to understand a single fantasy story? Was the worst thing about the Nazis the fact that they created tacky art? Find out all this and more in the latest mini episode from Bad Books for Bad People.

Intro/outro music: "Les Rêves de Dorian," Derniere Volonte
