About Us

Into the Stacks is the culmination of two decades of letter writing, phonecalls and even the odd floppy disk exchanged between two friends. As they encountered love, life and that all important world of work, their love of speculative fiction kept them going.This year, as Cat moves across an ocean to Canada, their correspondence is going digital as they record a weekly bookcast talking about everything from fantasy to science fiction, paranormal romance to dystopian thrillers.

Ep. 011 - What the f**k are we doing with our lives? Featuring Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
