I’m beginning to wonder whether J.C. Hutchins is actually a better podcast author than Scott Sigler. Not only does he have some of the most famous names in both Sci-Fi and Podcasting read the “story so far” intros, 7th Son is one of the best stories ever, period. I got cliffhangered so many times in Book 2 that it made me realise my ambitions of spacing the episodes out were shot; I can’t stop myself and after hurtling through Book 2 I’m already up to chapter 10 of the 17 available from Book 3. Maybe it’s just been too long since The Rookie finished but for my money, Sigler-brand violent sci-fi horror comes in second to the involving, page-turning suspense of J.C. Hutchins.
And now I feel really bad about what I said in my earlier post. At the end of book 2 JC scored some top secret book project and had to drop his conversational ramblings that I loved so much, shaving episodes back to the story-only shows usually reserved for podiobooks.com. He emailed me after my last post to say thanks for the feedback – and although at the time I didn’t know he had been forced to cut back he was nice enough to not say a word about it. It’s a shame, but he manages to holding down a job while he writes a book in 6 months and reads for his podcast so I’ll forgive him 😉
He’s still evil though. The guy leaves you hanging from bigger cliffs than we had in Heroes last year and Book 3 does it just as much as the other two 😀
