Reading Envy 169: Simulacrum with Jon Sealy

Jenny sits down in the Reading Envy Pub with author and publisher Jon Sealy. After we talk about the state of publishing and Jon's current projects, we also discuss books we've read and liked recently. Some books are just better in audio, some are necessarily dark, while others clear away the gloom.

Some of these links are Amazon affiliate links, where I do get a minor kickback when people click on them. But many of the links on today's post link to the small presses publishing the books, and although I receive no kickback on those links, I would love for you to support those publishers and writers.
