Season 13, Episode 2- Two Suns Setting


The Cromcast is back for a look at another Karl Edward Wagner tale, this time focusing their savage gaze on "Two Suns Setting". This story has got a far Howardian edge to it than our previous Kane story. It features some great debate on the merits of human civilization plus it has a giant and a sabre-tooth tiger! What more could you want?!



One Things

Jon: The Boys, superheroes getting skewered over on Amazon Prime

Josh: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, is reality relief for Josh

Luke: Holy Mountain Printing can hook you up with some sweet metal swag

Announcing Season 13 - The Left-Handed Path of Karl Edward Wagner's Kane!

 Hi all, in prep for the new season, we wanted to spell out our reading list we'll follow as we meet Karl Edward Wagner's Kane. It's a pretty easy approach to things, in that we're reading one short story collection, and one novel. The reading list will follow Night Winds first, and then we'll tackle Bloodstone! Specifically, here's the order of things:

  1. Undertow (in Night Winds)
  2. Two Suns Setting (in Night Winds)
  3. The Dark Muse (in Night Winds)
  4. Raven's Eyrie (in Night Winds)
  5. Lynortis Reprise (in Night Winds)
  6. Sing a Last Song of Valdese (in Night Winds)
  7. Bloodstone

Iconic Warner paperbacks of the books we'll be tackling this season, with the killer Frazetta covers! If you've not visited lately, go to www.frazettagirls.com and treat yo'self!

The History of Cromtober

Cromrades - we have sad news to share with you. There will be no Wine & Witches episode this year. The Wine & Witches crew did assemble and were excited to record for you, but our recorder malfunctioned. They discussed their favorite Halloween TV specials. It would have been good, and we're sad that it was lost. Another episode given up to the podcast gods, never to be heard by mortal ears. If you're bummed about the lack of Wine & Witches in your life this year, please let them know! We will pass the word along to them!



It is of small consolation, but here we have some ridiculous banter beside the fire. Cromtober is nearly history - and as we look further down the road, we see Karl Edward Wagner's creation Kane awaiting us!

Cromtober 2020- Halloween Traditions, Part 2- The Legend of Stingy Jack


Cromtober 2020 continues with our examination of Halloween traditions. Part two features a discussion about that mainstay of the front Halloween front porch, the Jack O'Lantern! Why do we carve these grotesque effigies and leave them in front of our domiciles? What sort of story might inspire us to do so? 


One Things

Luke: Found a new metal band he wants you to check out, Idle Hands

Jon: Think you should read some international folklore in Scandinavian Ghost Stories

Josh: Enjoys the Tim burton aesthetic and watched Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow, shout out your fave Burton film!


Next time: We venture north to Yankeeland to visit a charming little dale known as Sleepy Hollow! Join us won't you?
