Every two weeks we read a new book in the WH40k universe and discuss it on our podcast. We invite you to read along with us and join in on our conversation via comments, Twitter, email, or vox cast.
For this episode, we’re reading Da Gobbo’s Demise by Denny Flowers. You can purchase it at Amazon, or Black Library. Sorry, audio fans, this one isn’t available on Audible. That’s proppa skroogy, that is.
From the back of the book:
Redsnot was once Runtherd Killaskun’s least-worst grot, a position held by guile and treachery. But now Killaskun lies dead, and the leaderless herd are poised to tear each other apart. Besieged on all sides by bloodthirsty worshippers of the Dark Gods, only one grot can rally the cowering runts to victory. And that grot should have been Redsnot.
Instead, in swooped Da Red Gobbo, greatest hero of grot-kind, and the runts fell in behind the git like simpering pups. But Redsnot is patient. He knows that when bullets start flying, all sorts of unfortunate accidents can happen, and even Da Red Gobbo is susceptible to a knife in the back…
Questions to ponder after reading Da Gobbo’s Demise:
- Did you like the book?
- What parts stood out to you?
- [ohhhhhhh the beakies outside are shooty]
- [but the dakka is so delightful]
- [and since we’ve no shiny loot]
- [let it shoot, let it shoot, let it shoot]
My library didn’t have the book but I was able to recommend they purchase it. This has worked before (Crazy Food Truck) but I fear it wont happen in time for the pod. Sigh. O well maybe the next selection. Keep up the good work.
Hopefully it will work again!
