We’re changing things up. This week we discuss the difference between the literary science fiction and literary fantasy “fields” and review the dreadfully awful film, In the Name of the King. It’s one part serious, one part hilarity, and two parts fun.
If you like the show, please review us on iTunes! We could use the love. And, of course, we hope you enjoy this episode.
Question of the Week:
We actually have a request instead of a question. You might recall that we have a tagline at the beginning of each episode. Well, we’d like you to help us come up with the tagline for next week’s episode. Come up with a funny, ridiculous, cool, or downright weird tagline and send it to us. You can email your taglines to skiffyandfanty [at] gmail [dot] com or send us a voicemail at 206-203-1686! You can also leave a comment here or follow us on twitter. We’d love to hear your creative responses! (The only rule is that your tagline needs to be relatively clean; no curse words.)
