The Nonborn King

Lisa and Erika really dig into where Julian May might have been coming from. She gave a few of her characters a raw deal, and really tips her hand starting with the title of the book itself. Reading this novel with 2019-brain is a very different exercise than our first reads-through. (Yes, we recorded this episode in 2019.)

The Golden Torc

The saga continues with the other half of Group Green. We have so many feelings about spoilery recaps, mopey Elizabeth, savvy Mercy, and so much “Oh Bryan. Why?”

The Many-Colored Land

Erika and Lisa dive headlong into their epic re-read just as Group Green dives headlong into Earth’s Pliocene Epoch. Will either live up to expectations?

Why Read These Books?

In the inaugural episode of this read-along podcast, Erika and Lisa try to convince you that Julian May’s Saga of Pliocene Exile and Galactic Milieu series are well worth reading, even if they are a bit hard to find.

You have fair warning before they dive into hardcore spoilers about the series as a whole and what they expect for this re-read.
