Liberty Hardy

Senior Contributing Editor

Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, writer, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her three cats, Millay, Farrokh, and Zevon, in Maine. She is also right behind you. Just kidding! She’s too busy reading. Twitter: @MissLiberty

This week, Liberty and Rebecca discuss The Witches: Salem 1692, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, Slade House, and more new releases.

This episode was sponsored by A Blossom of Bright Light by Suzanne Chazin,  Trigger Warning: Short Fiction and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman and FabFitFun.
