The Gideon the Ninth Reread: Chapters 27 and 28

Now here’s a little story I’ve got to tell
About two goth boneheads you know so well
It started way back in January
With Harrow, Gideon, and me (L-B).

I’m your host, Beastie Books, and today I’ll be running down chapters twenty-seven and twenty-eight of this Hugo and Nebula-nominated book.

The Gideon the Ninth Reread: Chapters 23 and 24

It’s time for another close read of Gideon the Ninth by Tamysn Muir! I’m your host, Mr. Bob Dobalina. How is everyone doing out there? Not much has changed in the world since last week, but a lot has changed this week in Gideon the Ninth. I can’t believe we’re more than halfway through the book now! Today I’ll be running down chapters twenty-three and twenty-four for your amusement. And although these chapters be but little, they are fierce.

And like every time I reread books, I find that I have a new favorite minor character. This time around, which is my ninth reading, it’s Camilla. She’s so sensible and brave. I am neither of those things, so I admire her. (I had a different favorite minor character the first time I read the book, but they turned out to be rotten. Which also explains a lot about my dating life.)

The Gideon the Ninth Reread: Chapters 5 and 6

Gideon, oh, Gideon, say have you met Gideon
Oh! Gideon, the tattooed lady
She has blades that cut through bone so,
And through torso even more so…

Welcome back, space fans! It’s time for another close read of Gideon the Ninth by Tamysn Muir! I’m your host, Itsa Duckblur, and today I’ll be discussing chapters five and six. These two chapters were each teeny, a last bit of Ninth House and cavalier exposition before Gideon and Harrow rocket off into space, so I’m going to double up on the jokes, and throw in a definition of necromancy at the end.
