Nerdy Show Book Club returns with a vengeance! We’re hairless, naked, hopped up on dreamgum, and lookin’ to go all Lord of the Flies on ya. This month we read Philip Jose Farmer’s legendary existential historical fiction sci-fi,  To Your Scattered Bodies Go, the fist book in the Riverworld series. It’s like if Allan Quatermain took bath salts and played Myst!

Join Cap, Hex, Brandon, and Colin on uncanny journey into this and other nerdy literary adventures – including an excerpt from a novelization of another watery world.  A “Waterworld” you might say… Read on!

    So, what will be the next book? I’d like to read it before the next podcast.

  • Cap

    @studiomilam/styxyts
    It’s More Stories About Spaceships and Cancer by Casper Kelly. You can pick it up here: http://amzn.to/NsGQzK

    We always plug the next book in the episode postings, it’s right above the episode player.

  • Is there any chance we can get the Nerdy Show Book Club Theme by itself?

  • Cap

    @bertoelcon I’ll ask Luke!

  • I’m listening to you talking about that book, Feed. It’s such an interesting concept.. the most realistic future world I’ve ever seen written (in that same sense) was in Warren Ellis Transmetropolitan. Have you guys ever read it? It may be my favorite comic series of all time.

  • Cap

    @chemical42 I think it’s safe to say as a unit, we fucking LOVE Warren Ellis. Transmet is awesome.

  • Jesus christ, I love the book club episodes! I’ve been mining the archives in between the new, regular episodes of Nerdy Show; you guys had me cracking up yet again. “Jesus bones Mark Twain.” Comedy gold.

    • Cap

      Ha ha! Blast from the past! I totally forgot about that.
