E35: Silent Planets, Forgotten Children, and a Gothic Novel, Texas Style

In this episode recorded on a blustery morning at Spiderhouse in Austin, we discuss the merits of several books as well as what to do with donations.

Mauser begins by telling us about, Ransom, the main character in CS Lewis’ Space Trilogy.  One of her favorites of all time, this series is a thoughtful Sci-Fi adventure with CS Lewis biblical references. The books were originally published between 1938 and 1945.

McElroy shares Zoo Girl, by Rebecca Elliott, about an orphan who feels out of place in the orphanage. During a visit to the local zoo, she is accidentally left behind and discovers that the zoo is the home she has been looking for.

Hauser reviews Texas Gothic, a fun, romantic mystery set in the Texas Hill Country by Rosemary Clement-Moore. A little spooky, and a lot fun, this book is one that fans of witches, magic, and mysteries will not want to put down.
