Red flags flying the Dissecting World duo man the barricades & storm China Melville’s revolutionary fantasy novel ‘The Iron Council’. In so doing they shunt through such topics as:
– Industrialisation & Imperialism
– Terrorism v Freedom Fighting
– The coffee house & twitter revolutionaries

Steaming through universes as divergent as Tolkien, Adrian Tchaikovsky’s Shadows of the Apt, Game of Thrones & Conan’s Hyboria they consider:
– Does fantasy have to be conservative ?
– Do revolution narratives need a certain technological base ?
– The democratic nature of guns (& or crossbows).
