Episode 14 - Moon People by Dale M. Courtney

55 minutes

Our 14th episode!

Our current book is almost 800 pages, so it's taking us a bit longer than usual to read this one. For now, enjoy the last episode we put out before our hiatus.

We've risen from the dead just in time for Halloween. In this episode, we begrudgingly go to space and we don't even meet people from the moon. This book short story disappointed in length, content, and execution. It brings shame to the science fiction genre.

The English language is warped and twisted by the vacuum of space that is Dale M. Courtney's 'writing'. This is a very expensive short story written in the style of a child running through a park and shouting about each thing it sees. Actually, that would probably be far more entertaining and descriptive than this awful piece of literary sewage.

Thanks to fellow terrible book lover Daniel Canady for recommending Moon People!
