Worlds of Crime and Post-Apocalyptic
Somehow it escaped me that two different SFFaudio episodes aired which featured books I dearly love. Maybe that's because I picked the books!
The Angel of Terror by Edgar Wallace is a most unusual crime novel from 1922 where no one will believe the one man who has evidence that a criminal mastermind is a woman — because she's so beautiful, how could she be evil? We discuss it in episode 547.
Mockingbird by Walter Tevis is set in a world run by androids where everyone has forgotten how to read. (Truly a terrible place!) This is the book that Jesse continually thanks my mother for discovering. My own review is here. We discuss it in episode 549.
