Alzabo Soup is a podcast where we (Phil and Metz) do deep readings of high quality speculative fiction.  We update every week on Fridays.  

The Shadow of the Torturer by Gene Wolfe begins 10/6/17. Here's what you need to know:

  • We are using the 1994 "Shadow & Claw" and "Sword & Citadel" edition of the work.

  • We will read 1-2 chapters per episode (so 1-2 chapters per week).

  • We will be doing a "minimal spoilers" reading of the book (you can't guarantee no spoilers with an author like Wolfe), so it should be pretty safe to read along your first time with us.

  • We plan on doing all four books in the Book of the New Sun in order, followed by The Urth of the New Sun. We will probably take over a year to complete this read from start to finish.

 

Please Note: This podcast is intended to be listened to in chronological order by title.  Please pick the title you'd like to listen to from "categories" start with the oldest episode of your title first!

We're always interested in more conversation, so please tweet us or email us if you have something to say!
