For the first time, Jess and Trish review a book which it turns out they both despise, "Mute" by Piers Anthony. Not even telekinetic chickens can save this misogynistic piece of old sci-fi. Trish suspects even the person who wrote the description for the back cover wasn't able to finish it, as Mit the hermit crab is misidentified as telepathic when he is actually clairvoyant. Next month they put this debacle behind them with "The Girl with All the Gifts" by M. R. Carey.

This month, Trish and Jess talk about "The Sparrow" by Mary Doria Russell. We learn that Trish doesn't care about space potatoes, there's all kinds of sexual tension, and Jess just wants Tim Gunn to be happy. Next month is "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" by John Berendt. (Musical Credit: Paer Natus Est Nobis Et Filius Datus Est Nobis by Benedictine Monks Of Santo Domingo De Silos)
