Welcome to a fresh, shining day for Novel Not New. We are hopeful, we are at our peak, we are ready to tackle the greatest video game series ever made, DanganRon-NO WAY DANGANRONPA IS AWFUL THIS IS THE NO GOOD AWFUL SERIES THAT WILL BRING NOTHING BUT DESPAIR! Either way... we ask, in this extra oversized episode, where you might fall, dear listener. Thank you for your time in this, the final killing game, at the end of the world.Read More
We take a break from the long and complicate for the short and fun this month as the reading crew crack open the delightfully breezy Butterfly Soup, by Brianna Lei. Baseball, childhood pressures, the way the 90s taught us racism, and more all take their turns at bat as we slide into home with this funny, charming little game. Sports metaphor.

We've finally done it, we've finally played a bad game! It only took three episodes.
But that doesn't mean it's a bad podcast, as the Novelettes all pile in for a lengthy episode about the ups and downs of drink making and people chatting in Glitch City with the cyberpunk mess that is VA-11 HALL-A. A whole array of 'delights' await you in this episode, as we talk about our least favorite tropes and lament men writing 'cool' women as a thing because it never, ever works.Read More
