Fantasy Fans Arise!

I’ll admit it. I’m a fan of fantasy. The books, the movies, the games. I’ve always been a fan, even when I didn’t know it. I was proud to admit it through my schooling days, and still am.

Yet we aren’t always taken seriously.

So I was pleased to come across the following post – Let’s stop sneering at fantasy readers. Good advice.

As a reader first, and now hopeful writer, it has always been my genre. I’ve tried dabbling in other genres, but always returned to it. Most of my favourite books are fantasy books. Tolkien. Gemmell. Pratchett.

And while my writing is often fantasy with some twists and variations, it is still proudly planted in the fantasy genre.

And that is the way I like it.

    Although I am a writer of Science Fiction, I adore fantasy tales. Currently, I’m reading the War of Souls trilogy from Dragonlance. Great stuff!

    Dragonlance was not really my stuff, my interests tending elsewhere, but its a big enough genre to encompass all types of styles and fans.
