In episode 40, our heroes talk about N.D. Wilson's young adult horror/fantasy/action novel _Boys of Blur. _For such a slim volume, this book packs a lot in, and our heroes find themselves with plenty to discuss, including small towns, football rivalries, race relations, C.S. Lewis-wannabees, useless clichés, useful tropes, extravagant character names that are good, and one character name that they weren't such a huge fan of. 

By the way, here's some footage from the event that Jake mentions involving Nate's dad Doug.

Next week, more _Boys of Blur. _After that, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness.
