Matt and Dave bring you page by page guides to the books you love and the books you love to hate.


We've gone back to the Goosebumps well for our Halloween Spooky Special this year. It's the first one in the series, so probably the best one right? We encounter a spooky house, some spooky kids and a man in a cowboy hat who lures children into his car. Doesn't get more horrific than that.

It’s time for the Halloween spooky special! Every year we read one of literature’s great scary classics (except for when we do Goosebumps) and this year it’s a doozy - a readthrough and discussion of Edgar Allen Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher. As always we’ll be digging into the huge and important questions - was this the first ever haunted house? Why not just play Wonderwall? Is that really the best way of storing gunpowder? And perhaps above all, where did the armour come from?
As always, let us know what you think on Twitter @sharkliveroil, and by email at sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com.

It's that time of year again. Time for ghosts and ghouls and the HALLOWEEN SPOOKY SPECIAL! This year we're going back to the goosebumps well, with RL Stine's The Cuckoo Clock of Doom. When one pathetic twelve year old is so hated by his own family that he resorts to casual antique vandalism to get his own back, he unleashes powers he never could have imagined. A chilling tale to pass this creepy evening.

Woooo! Wooooo! Wooooooo! It's that time of year again! So get ready for another Halloween Spooky Special! This year we're going back to Edgar Allen Poe with a readthrough of his short story, Hop Frog. When a vertically challenged disabled court jester gets sick and tired of being pushed around by the king, he hatches a darkly genius plan that is best summed up as "the mic drop to end all mic drops." Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

We're sorry we've been away so long! To make it up to you we're doing a super scary (and, let's be honest, super late) halloween spooky special! We're delving into the Goosebumps series to have a read through One Day At Horrorland. It's got plucky two dimensional protagonists, hilariously underused depressed green monsters and a collection of chapter ending cliffhangers to rival any American soap opera. And if all that wasn't enough the chilling tale brought back a painful memory for Dave which involves flo rida, a dark room and a man in a bear costume. Even if you haven't read the story (and I'm betting there are more than a few of you who haven't) it's still well worth a listen!

ooooOOOOOOooooh - it's a scary Shark cage special this week, as we do an all-in-one take on Stephen King's classic novella The Mist. This is weather at it's most bad-assed, containing not only chills but acid spiders, unhinged old ladies and ravenous tentacles. Surely, it's nothing to do with the mysterious government project up on the hill. Surely.

It's that time of year again! The pumpkins are carved, the trick or treaters are out in force and its time for Shark Liver Oil's Halloween Spooky Special! This year we're reading The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allen Poe - one of the classic gothic horror short stories. It's got dressing up, a spooky castle, drunken debauchery and a whole heap of dead stuff. It doesn't get much more halloweeny than that does it? If you've any comments to make on the story or the cast send them to sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com or find us on twitter @sharkliveroil
