This week, we're responding to questions and comments from our listeners, and talking about some of the things we found most enjoyable this month. 

Learn how frequently we plan to update, our plans for future books, what albums we're listening to, and who our favorite Fab 5 member is. 

We also take the time to appologize for a mistake we made in our Use of Weapons pre-read. 

If you'd like your comments to be included in future shows, follow us at @spectologypod on twitter, or email us at 

As always, many thanks to Dubby J and Noah Bradley for doing our music and art.


This month we're reading Use of Weapons by Iain M Banks.

In our innagural pre-read episode, we discuss the Space Opera and Mil SciFi subgenres, Iain M. Banks' socialism, how his Culture novels work, and our relationship to his work.

This is our first episode! There are a few sound issues, which we have already worked out for future eps.

Welcome to our podcast!

Each month, Adrian and Matt will pick a science fiction book and read it. Learn about our history with SF, why we're doing our podcast, and what our plans are in this introduction episode.

As always, music is by Dubby J, and art by Noah Bradley
