Season One: 11 books, over 3,000 pages, and 14 hours of audio
After reading these books for Season One, I compiled a list (see below) where I ranked them from my favorite to least favorite. I absolutely loved Brett Anderson’s Coal Black Mornings. Like I said in Episode 10, I read it all in one sitting and I was sad when it ended. While I certainly enjoyed reading some of the other books (others not so much), Coal Black Mornings simply moved and spoke to me in a way none of the other books we read this season did. I don’t often re-read books because I am too busy reading new ones all the time, but I know I will read this one again at some point. Perhaps I will read it again on a rainy day while playing Hounds of Love softly in the background.

I hope you enjoyed Season One as much as we enjoyed producing it. There are over 14 hours of audio, so if you missed an episode or two, or if you would like to listen to your favorite(s) again, you can listen any time. We will announce the launch date for Season Two soon, and hope you will listen when our new season begins.
