Why is royalty such a prevalent form of government in Science Ficiton and Fantasy?  This is the question that our co-hosts, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel discuss with RevSF's Man from Japan (tm) David Farnell.  They explore the origins of our fascination with kings, and try to find a fantasy novel where there isn't some sort of fudal ruler.  They also reach out to you, the listeners, asking you if you know of one.  There is also the Week in Nerdliness and the Nerd News, so it is a slightly supersized version of goodness (think baker's dozen!).

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.

A reminder about our feedback address. revcast@revolutionsf.com.   Is there a fantasy book out their without a feudal system?
