Listen to an excerpt of V.E. Schwab’s A Gathering of Shadows audiobook, read by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading!

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games-an extravagent international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries-a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again-and so to keep magic’s balance, another London must fall.

The Machine

When Kramer’s tub drain slows, he buys a plunger from a nearby bodega and tries to unclog it. His efforts pull up what appear to be individual pages from a paperback novel. Upon drying them out, he finds the writing incredibly compelling, and is frustrated that he doesn’t have the complete book. For a while he insists on using Jerry’s shower, afraid he’ll wash the rest of the pages away if he runs any water down his own drain. After days of fruitless plunging, he gives up and tries to track down an actual copy of the book, but discovers to his dismay that no bookstores or libraries in the city have any record of the author even existing.

Jerry notices his own tub drain getting slower and slower following Kramer’s use, which inspires some new material about his plumbing situation. A concerned building inspector in the audience approaches him after the show and insists on making a visit. The man shows up the next morning and Jerry and Kramer accompany him to the basement, where they discover that the plumbing system isn’t hooked up to the city’s infrastructure at all, but rather to a cube of metal and flesh in the boiler room. Whatever it is, it seems to be breathing.

“Well, that doesn’t seem like it’s up to code,” says Jerry, after processing his initial shock. “What is it?”

The building inspector crouches and examines it. “No clue. Never seen anything like—“

[A plot device,] whispers the machine somehow, interrupting him.

Everyone jumps back a step, startled. Kramer yelps.

“What do you mean, ‘plot device’?” asks Jerry.

[A device that generates plots.]

Kramer approaches cautiously. “Are you the one who wrote the book?”

[No. Finish reading, Kramer. It’s important. You have to read it all.]

“How? I can’t find it anywhere!”

Jerry shoves past Kramer. “Forget the book! What are you doing in our basement?”

The machine begins to hum and glow.

[INTERIOR, JERRY’S APARTMENT,] it booms. [DAY. JERRY, KRAMER, and THE BUILDING INSPECTOR are standing in JERRY’s living room. None of them remember the PLOT DEVICE in the basement. KRAMER is holding an OLD PAPERBACK BOOK. Its pages look wrinkled, as if they had at one point sustained heavy water damage. THE BUILDING INSPECTOR strolls…]

…from Jerry’s kitchen to the living room, making a note on his clipboard. “Looks like everything’s in order here.”

“That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you,” says Jerry, annoyed. “I don’t even know why you had to come over here.”

An odd look passes over the inspector’s face. “You know, neither do I, now that you mention it.”

“Well, then.” Jerry makes a melodramatic gesture toward his front door and the inspector stumbles out in a daze.

“Weird guy,” mumbles Jerry. He closes the door and looks at Kramer. “Found your book, huh?”

Kramer suddenly notices the book he’s holding and jumps a little. “I guess so!”

The two stand in silence for a moment.

“Well?” prompts Jerry. “Maybe you should go read it before it washes down the drain again.”

Kramer stares at the book’s dogeared cover for awhile, taking in its bizarre 1970s-style artwork. “Eh, I’m not interested anymore.” He tosses the book on Jerry’s dining room table and leaves.

WARNING: ELAINE PLOT MISSING. IS THIS INTENTIONAL? (Y/n)

> n

ACTIVATING CONTINGENCY ALGORITHM…

After finally escaping the endless corridor, Elaine pretends to be a blind lawyer in order to garner sympathy from the judges that oversee her cases. After a brief stint as a cabaret singer, she then goes on to become the Vice President of the United States.

***ERROR: TRYING AGAIN (1)…***

Elaine’s obnoxious but endearing neighbor unintentionally breaks her stereo with a projectile icicle slung through her bedroom window, much to the displeasure of her cartoon criminal husband.

***ERROR: TRYING AGAIN (2)…***

Elaine continually shifts between jokey personalities before a live studio audience.

***ERROR: TRYING AGAIN (3)…***

Elaine was born on January 13, 1961 to Judith LeFever and Gérard Louis-Dreyfus. As a child, she traveled the world with her mother and stepfather, due to the latter’s work with Project HOPE. She attended Northwestern college, where she met her husband Brad. The two presently live happily in Santa Monica with their two sons, Henry and Charles.

***SUCCESS***

Women Wartime Spies
External image

I would highly recommend Women Wartime Spies by Ann Kramer. It’s a great book on female spies, primarily British and primarily from WW2 but also mentioning some from other countries and from WW1. It was nice to learn about the historical backstory of the real-life women who did kind of work Agent Carter is depicted as doing. found myself wondering which of the organizations and people mentioned she would have theoretically worked with and how she might have been recruited.

The Book Proposal

Kramer learns of a contest that will publish the most original book idea. Having long abandoned his hopes of selling his coffee table book about coffee tables that is itself shaped like a coffee table, he throws the flier in Jerry’s kitchen trashcan.

Fearing she is about to be fired from her publishing job, Elaine begins spitefully green-lighting the worst books she finds. Surprisingly, this leads to a boost in ironic purchases, and she is promoted to head editor.

Months later, George bursts excitedly into Jerry’s apartment. “I did it! I won!”

“Won what?” asks Jerry.

“I found a flier in your garbage when I was fishing out a pastry. They’re gonna publish my book!”

“Oh really?” asks Kramer, choking back his jealous tears. “What’s it about?”

“Get this—it’s a book about bookshelves… that’s shaped like a bookshelf!”

“What’s it called?” asks Jerry.

“Seinfelt,” replies George.
