Coming up on Starz: A young woman is magically transported to a 2-dimensional world where she has a steamy affair with an octagon. Stay tuned for Flatlander.

A man who was raised by monkeys on a deserted island (decades before the creation of Tarzan), the young Saturnin Farandoul fights pirates, elephant-thieves, Mormons, and the entire nation of Australia in this raucous and bizarre parody of the works of Jules Verne.

Because you demanded it! We caved in and decided to pander to the lowest common denominator and cover the origins of the massively popular Saturnin Fanadoul franchise of books, movies, video games and… What’s that? Oh, it turns out The Adventures of Saturnin Farandoul is actually little more than a weird, obscure Victorian-era French novel. My mistake.

One of the strangest and most influential pulp heroes of the 20th century, Michael Moorcock’s Elric of Melniboné has impacted not just literature but movies, animation, games, music, and even the practice of magic. In this episode we look back on his weird but wide-ranging legacy.
