Something Kricked This Way Comes: Part 1
As promised, the brisk winds of October are sweeping past, but carrying holiday delight along with them. This is the first of three episodes on Ray Bradbury's novel Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962).

Brick waxes eloquent about nostalgia, while Kathryn struggles to say anything beyond, "I love this book." We both love this book. Note: Because it is us, we also spent about fifty minutes arguing about the book's conception of the way in which evil functions ... Our editor declared, "Enough! This is already long enough!" and excised that section. The recording, however, does still exist and may make an appearance at some point if there is enough popular (or unpopular) demand.
