Episode 9: ‘Purple and Black’ by K.J. Parker

We needed something special this week. Not just your run-of-the-mill epic, with the same bland political intrigue, the same conniving highborn jetsetters, and the same Clausewitzian martial maneuvering. Something special.

What we needed was a run-of-the-mill epic, with the same bland political intrigue, the same conniving highborn jetsetters, and the same Clausewitzian martial maneuvering that was also very very short.

Stay tuned for the ninth episode of Genre Stop!, in which Bri and Scott discuss all those things K.J. Parker’s Purple and Black has going for it beyond its 120 pages. Along the way, Bri invents a Jane Austen book, Scott solves morality, and they both conveniently look past Bri’s consistent ableism.
