Every month (or more often, as the mood strikes!) Tenebrous Kate and Jack Guignol cover the weirdest, kinkiest, and most outrageous fiction we can unearth. The books discussed range from classics of gothic literature to startling works of new weird, from romantic potboilers to horror epics, from cult favorites to obscure pulp treasures. Join us for a smarter-than-average look at WAY-weirder-than-average books.

Things get painful for our hosts as the results of a high-stakes book dare. Kate assigns Jack Ready Player One, the nerd nostalgia sci fi blockbuster by Ernest Cline, and Jack retaliates by assigning Kate I Hate Everyone But You, a novel co-written in text message and email form by YouTube stars Gaby Dunn and Allison Raskin. Descend into the grisly battle between geeky trivia and woke social media teens.

What happens after the dumbest possible apocalypse? What is the true meaning of the peach emoji? Will Kate revolt against the modern world? Will Jack have to resort to fighting absolutely everyone? Find out all this and more in this month's episode of Bad Books for Bad People.
