Bookstabber Episode 1: A Wizard of Earthsea

We’re making a podcast! We hope you like Bookstabber. We’re really having a fun time making it. Here’s the pitch:

Gene and Willow argue about books. Well, Willow does. Gene seems hellbent on finding reasons to like all of them.

Can Gene, with professional help, find books Willow will love? Or will they all just make her rant? (Either way, we all win.) Welcome to Bookstabber, featuring Library Comic’s Gene Ambaum and Willow Payne

In our first episode, we talk about Gene’s favorite book, A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin. And the conversation doesn’t go exactly as Gene expects it to. (Will it ever?)

You should be able to download it in whatever podcast app you use. If not, you can listen to it on our site or download it from there.

New episodes will appear every three weeks or so.

And if you want to offer your professional help by suggesting a book Willow might enjoy, awesome! Based on the episodes we’ve recorded so far, Gene’s track record is not very good. (Which is great for the podcast, but…) Here’s a page with everything you might want to know: So you think you can recommend a book Willow will like? Email us a suggestion or two, with a specific, short justification for each, or readers advisory type questions for Willow at
