The VOK Book Club Crew gathers (actually gathered back in September 2015) to discuss China Mieville’s weird fiction masterpiece, “Perdido Street Station”.

Hosts Greg (claudiusthefool), Steven (SJLee), Brett (WhiteRaven), Alex (LuckyCharms), Amber (Amberrocks) & Zach (Alias) assemble to discuss the myriad inhabitants of New Crobuzon, it’s political structure, the true meaning of The Weaver’s ramblings, the effects of Dreamshit & just who the hell was Jack Half-A-Prayer.

Beware of spoilers for Perdido Street Station but not for the other books in the Bas-lag series.

c58_sansa_v_pwwp_png

The Flagship that is the ASOIAF re-read sails on into episode 29, like Davos into Blackwater Bay, and one can only hope that there isn’t any wildfire or Imp to use it.

Join hosts Patrick the Tall; MunroeJock/Jock; Nadia; Shadowbaby/Hannah; and (later) Nymeria/Marie as they discuss Sansa 5, Davos 3 and Tyrion 13 from A Clash of Kings.

The podcast is dark and full of spoilers for all published works in ASOIAF.

The aftershow begins at 2 hr 19 minutes.

The artwork is from the A Podcast Of Ice and Fire drawing project on Deviantart, and is Sansa 5. The music extracts are by Alpine Universe and is available to purchase on iTunes

For listeners playing along at home, the next episode will cover the end half of the Battle of the Blackwater Bay, hosted by Casey, and will cover Sansa 6, Tyrion 14 and Sansa 7.
