Fantasy Bedtime Hour is a public-access television cable TV program on San Francisco channel 29. It can be described by its tagline, "Two girls in bed ill equipped to handle fantasy novel concepts discuss [Stephen R. Donaldson's 1977 fantasy novel] Lord Foul's Bane."

Each of the forty episodes in the series consists of Heatherly Stankey and Julie Breithaupt in bed together, reading and discussing the text. According to a San Francisco Chronicle reviewer, the women are supposedly, but not actually, nude beneath the covers.[1] There is a reading with paraphrase, a quick analysis, a reenactment or "fantasy action sequence", and then a discussion with an 'expert' - the experts being individuals who have actually finished and understood the book. Toward the end of the series, Stephen R. Donaldson himself appeared in some episodes as the "expert". A highlight of the show are the "charts" drawn during the program to illustrate some concept from the reading.
