Leftovers: the Scary Show reading list.

Lots of background work goes into every episode of Rare Book Cafe. We cast a wide net for background information that might inform our discussions and provide diversions when Lindsay Thompson launches into another lecture.

But then the show is over, and- especially if Lindsay's worked up a head of steam- the material may not have all been used!
