* RapeAsBackstory: References it [[DiscussedTrope used badly]] during his pretty critical review of the first ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' novel. As he further explains, shoehorning a rape into a female character's past is really [[DeusAngstMachina not an ideal way of earning sympathy]] for said character (he considers it cheap and trite). He had the same opinion on the rape backstory of the female protagonist from Robert J. Sawyer's ''[[TheNeanderthalParallax Hominids]]'', which he considered to be even more badly done.

My name is Luke Burrage and this is the show where I review every single science fiction book that I read, as I read it.

** A March 2009 review of his podcast by SFX Magazine even referred to him as such, [[InvokedTrope literally]] :
-->"Four stars out of five. The set-up is as no-frills as the title - Berlin-based SF fan Luke Burrage reads a sci-fi book, and then talks about it - but while some literary podcasts can be dreary, Burrage is an enthusiastic motormouth with an infectious love of the genre. His tastes are varied, and even if you don't agree with all of his opinions, they're still fun to listen to."
