Non-Euclidean Æthercast #53: The Golden Age of the Fantastic

If you take a look at the biggest box office hits of the last years, even decades, the most successful TV series and what else is going on around the net and in book stores, comic shops etc. you cannot help but notice: Movies, games, and books featuring fantastic settings are massively popular.
I would like to argue the point that science fiction, fantasy, horror, and all related genres are experiencing a shared golden age and this is what this episode of the Non-Euclidean Æ is about. Enjoy, it is a happy episode!
