A very special podcast this week as Deanna Toxopeus, and David Farnell are joined by authors Ika Koek and Alaya Johnson to discuss how Fantasy fiction deals with the issue of race.  Our participants look at non-human races as metaphors, the diversity of main characters and the placement of the work of non-white authors in the bookstore.  There is a lot of information given out in this one, so you might want to bring a pen and paper.  Or you could head over to the RevSF Boards where you will find the links that were mentioned.  Oh did we mention that there is also the Nerdnews and the Week in Nerdiness.

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. .  Tell us what you think about the Roundtable!  How many links did we miss?
