Book: “The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch” by Joseph Delaney
Alternate Title in UK:”Wardstone Chronicles: The Spook’s Apprentice”
“For years, Old Gregory has been the Spook for the county, ridding the local villages of evil. Now his time is coming to an end. But who will take over for him? Twenty-nine apprentices have tried—some floundered, some fled, some failed to stay alive.
Only Thomas Ward is left. He’s the last hope, the last apprentice.” (from Amazon.com)

Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance.” (from Amazon.com)
TRIBUTE TO SIR TERRY PRATCHETT (1948 to 2015):
Greetings, this is Rick co-host on the acclaimed sci-fi/fanasty podcast, No Deodorant in Outer Space.
On behalf of my partners, Ryan Sean O’Reilly and David Wilkinson and friends of the podcast, we wish to extend our deepest and most sincere condolences to the Pratchett Family and fans all over the world. We have been blessed with the everlasting force of Sir Pratchett’s life and work. The sparkling gems which he so finely wrought for the last 40 years shall continue to shine indefinite among the constellations of legend and lore. Star gazers through the ages shall be touched by these diamonds and with hope, add to a rich legacy for as long as they can think for themselves and act with love as Sir Pratchett has demonstrated.

Also, we previously covered Pratchett’s Discworld novel “Going Postal” in Season One – Episode Eight (we all enjoyed it–five stars across the board!). So, if you missed that episode and want to know more about this excellent author, and this work you can listen here: https://nodeodorantinouterspace.wordpress.com/2014/10/01/review-going-postal-discworld-terry-pratchett-and-going-postal-jon-jones/. We will be covering his very first Discworld book, “The Colour of Magic” later in this season (and are looking forward to it).
