Special Edition: To Have and to Hoax

We had the opportunity to try something new - we were asked if we'd like to interview debut author Martha Waters about her book To Have and to Hoax, you know, back then when the world was young and we were allowed to leave our houses.  Martha was really nice and we feel really bad that all her fun book release party stuff got cancelled - however, she's doing a virtual launch Tuesday April 7th on Instagram at 7 PM EST so maybe go join her there.

To Have and to Hoax is a Publisher's Weekly starred Regency romantic comedy about... well, about somebody who fakes contracting a fatal respiratory disease so, like, timely!  This is a great time to support your local bookstore, so we've linked to Martha's local Chapel Hill bookstore Flyleaf (where her party was supposed to take place) if you'd like to buy a copy.  Looks like they're doing $1 media mail shipping if you spend $25!

I think, like, a lot of people have gone there before.



Before there was Chris Pine's dick in a Robert the Bruce movie, there was Shatner getting shirtless all over the place and introducing the world to the ancient martial art of "duck real slow and then do that thing with your one fist on top of the other one".  I'd make a joke about Kirk fucking green ladies, but as a real Trekkie I know damned well that Kirk was, in fact, married to his ship and never fucked any green ladies at all, although he did definitely do it with three or four non-green ladies during the run of TOS.

I love Star Trek and I love vintage romance novels and I can absolutely admit that they share a lot in terms of plot structure, heavy handed dialogue, and seriously silly costumes, although romance novels only wish they had an Uhura.  Also, McCoy and Spock are a totally classic romance novel couple and eventually dear god I hope they finally got to bang it out and quit bitching at each other.

PS - by the way, we are TOTALLY podcasting about Imzadi one of these days.

    1. I read it unironically in high school; I think Courtney is mostly a Trek virgin. It's gonna be White Nonsense In Spaaaaaaace!
