So, the podcast isn’t coming back in the forseeable future, but that doesn’t mean Spoiler Party as a whole is dead. The form it’ll take next hasn’t been ironed out, but rest assured, things are happening. A reading list is being worked on and the format is being bandied about. We’ll let you know as soon as we figure out what we’re doing.
Okay, so April and May ended up being wild months with a lot of things going on. We were forced into a temporary indefinite hiatus, that said, we’re totally back. For now we’re just going to push the schedule back one month. Thanks for bearing with us. ❤

The Broken Kingdoms – N.K. Jemisin
This month we get around to talking about N.K. Jemisin’s really fantastic “The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms” It’s 40 minutes of us being super excited. After that we talk about how the next year is going to play out and give out the list of titles we’ll be reading next year.
This month’s selection is our second straight roasting affair. Andrzej Sapkowski’s “The Last Wish” is a lot of what we absolutely hate about high fantasy. So join us as we tear into this abysmal affair.
Much like the sporting event activity, this book was probably played out before it ever started and probably shouldn’t have been attempted in the first place. It could have been interesting, but ultimately falls short of a fun thing so many times in so many ways. We recount them all in this month’s episode!
This month we explore the world as gnomes see it in Terry Pratchett’s Bromeliad triology. If you’re curious as to exactly why it is you can’t win love with a flower full of frogs then you’ll definitely want to listen. You’ll also catch some discussion on Pratchett’s career as a whole.
