On a blazing steed of heat and light, Death // Sentence arrives once again.

Then, they discuss "Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space" by Keller Easterling, a mind-boggling, expansive analysis…

On this week's death sentence, Eden and Langdon tackle Suzette Elgin's ambitious linguistic-feminist science fiction novel/project NATIVE TONGUE. But first, they must conquer the United States Stock Market and defeat the evils of reactionary analysis at root within the Gamestop investing push. Eden is transformed into a psychocloud and Langdon cont…
 
Langdon and Eden tackle The Vorrh trilogy by B. Catling, a wild lysergic absinthian literary feast combining shards of magical realism, avant-garde literature, ecstatic spiritualist poetry and prose, anti-colonialism, paganism, fantasy, horror and historical fiction into one spellbinding modern masterwork. But first they must discuss how utterly fu…
 
On this episode, Langdon and Eden tackle the universe's most pressing issue: the nature of the Grinch, the contradictions of the Grinchgeist, and the spiritual warfare that fires his burning heart. Additionally, they cover P. Djeli Clark's novella RING SHOUT, Langdon's book of the year, which is a Lovecraftian counter-read interposing the KKK as se…
 
Langdon and Eden do the long-threatened and discuss House of Leaves, both as a cultural object and as a novel, especially as it pertains to literalizing anxiety states. The novel carries both an overwhelming adoration a reciprocal stigma, both of which cloud its functions as an art object. We seek at least in part to dispel that. Discussion of the …
 
Recovered from Langdon being extremely bad at technology comes an episode long in the making. We actually started prep for this episode over a month ago but, between anxiety breakdowns and, tech issues. BUT: Now we cover the powerful novel THE ONLY GREAT HARMLESS THING by Brooke Bollander, a novel about humanity's history of atavistic self-harm and…
 
On our newest Death Sentence Solo Series, Eden (@tallesteden) discusses Andrew Krivak's THE BEAR, a heart-wrenching and powerful book that peers deeply into both a human and a naturalist terror. That of grief, of solitude, of love and of the natural world. He mentioned sobbing at the end of the book; prepare for a heavy and real one. FEATURED MUSIC…
 
On our newest Death Sentence Solo Series, Eden discusses Jeff Noon's series The Nyquist Mysteries. Jeff Noon is a remarkable figure in the field, sitting somewhere between Philip K Dick and Paul Auster; following that analogy, this series functions almost like Noon's own version of what The New York Trilogy by Auster might look like in the hands of…
 
Langdon and Eden tackle Becky Chambers' Hugo-nominated novella TO BE TAUGHT, IF FORTUNATE, a work which grapples with the holocratic and highly mediated communal/social side of science. Meanwhile, on the first half, they discuss two radically different images of the teenager: the Kenosha shooter and the girl who made a smart-than-she-got-credit Tik…
 
A solo episode! Langdon launches a new sub-series working through analysis of all of Kazuo Ishiguro's body of work in chronological order. This time it's his debut, A PALE VIEW OF HILLS (1982), a novel exploring a Japanese woman's grief after losing her eldest daughter to suicide following a move to Britain and the confounding non-response of her y…
 
Langdon and Eden breakdown the glittering poetic beauty of Roger Zelazny's seminal science fiction novel LORD OF LIGHT. But first, we have to talk about shoes that look straight up like ribbed condoms as well as the VP pick for the 2020 election. Spoiler: Electoral leftism in the West is a near systemic impossibility and worth less time than the bo…
 
DEATH // SENTENCE returns after a brief hiatus. Between COVID and life changes for our hosts, Gareth has had to step away for the foreseeable future, leaving Langdon to figure out how to run, edit, and host a podcast all on his lonesome.

Down for a quiet, sad book about maybe or maybe not getting your life together? Yeah you are.

You made us do this.We read what is officially the worst thing that either of us have ever read: Supermarket, by Bobby Hall aka also known as Logic.

Death Stranding is not a book or a metal, Bring Me The Horizon's contribution to the soundtrack notwithstanding, so why are we talking about it? Because it's Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima's first game since his acrimonious split with the Metal Gear franchise that he's been working on since 1987. It's about being a Deliveroo driver if ghosts were re…
 
We're joined by Nathalie Olah to talk about her book Steal As Much As You Can, the only book ever written that will make you feel less crazy. It's primarily about the erosion of working-class culture in the UK after the 2008 financial collapse, but it's about so much more, and comes with four handy tips to improve your life and smash capitalism. Mu…
 
You probably know that Margaret Atwood's The Testaments won half of a Booker Prize, and you definitely know that we have Takes about that.

We get Andy Curtis, the entirety of one-man post-post-post-Black Metal band Caïna, on the line to talk about a little of everything but a lot of high weirdness. We start in unlikely reviews in British tabloids and end up in a bizarre real-life tale of UFOs and poltergeist activity. Strap yourselves in warbrothers, warsisters and nonbinary warperson…
 
We know what you're thinking: *another* lesbian time travel book? Well hold on, because this is a gorgeously written epistolary time-travel romance from the twin blades of Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone. It's very good. We use it as a launch point to talk about the nature of time, memory, love and swords - and there's lots more fan service for an…
 
We've got Jay from Crowhurst on the show for an 'interview' where we don't actually ask questions but more just hang out for an hour. It's fun though and you'll learn a bunch about noise music, cancel culture, appropriating anime symbols, whether Death's album Symbolic is good (it is), and how the weed in the UK is garbage.Music by Crowhurst: https…
 
Tamsyn Muir (@tazmuir), joins us to talk about her sci-fi-fantasy-horror-punk-core book Gideon The Ninth, the story of entitled Goth teens in a creepy space-crypt backstabbing each other over who gets to be the most immortal.
