We planned on reading Red Tithe by Robbie MacNiven while on vacation in Hawaii—seemed super appropriate to read a book about shark Space Marines on a beach—but then Godblight released, and, well, you don’t put Robby Bobby in the corner. Not even for sharks. No matter how fitting the situation at the time seems.
In addition to the island vibes, we had to see what the fuss was about with Edoardo Albert’s Silent Hunters. Did he actually retcon what MacNiven set up with this exiled Chapter? Did he change the character and culture of them? We were on the case.
The Black Library does have something new out, and it appears to take place during the Gaunt’s Ghosts series. While we plan on getting to the next book in MacNiven’s Carcharodons series, past experience strongly suggests that we leave sharks for the moment to read an actual new book—Urdesh: The Serpent and the Saint. Will Dan Abnett’s books on the Gaunt’s Ghosts and the Iron Snakes be important background knowledge? I guess we’ll find out. At least one of us has read all of those books. The other hasn’t read a single one. I’ll let you deduce which is which.
The Red Tithe by Robbie MacNiven vidcast is, of course, on YouTube, and the podcast is on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and virtually anywhere else you can find podcasts! If you like us, please subscribe or even leave a review! If you haven’t bought the book yet, better do that before giving a listen! Don’t forget, we are also on Patreon! We have two tiers of unique content for your listening pleasure for only a few bucks a month. We appreciate your love and support regardless of becoming a patron.
Each episode will be in a traditional book club format. We will read one mutually agreed upon book to discuss at the club meeting aka podcast. Sometimes we will read brand new books, sometimes we will read old books, but there will be a method to our madness as to why.
