No, I don't mean a kind of made-in-your-basement fan-fic video. Although this
might be considered its kin. A few local women are doing a public access show in San Francisco in which two apparently naked women lie in bed, reading aloud from works of fantasy such as Lord Foul's Bane
. They discuss the book being read--or at least make a stab and understanding it (I cannot read Donaldson, having tried when the books first came out, so if Julie and Heatherly can make head or tales of his work, they're one up on me). Apparently they occasionally invite others to share the bed and discussion.
The article describes Bane
as "a kind of Everest of the fantasy genre." I think that's giving the book too much credit. It's not as laughably terrible as H.C. Turk's Black Body,
which constitutes an entire mountain range of impenetrable language and plot, but I can't imagine reading it just because it's there,
