Editorial Reviews

Review

'Given that genre is really a construction of critics, librarians and booksellers, designed to place books in a way that they can be more easily found by consumers, and that fantasy literature is less easy to define than, say, crime fiction, this companion has a large field to cover and does an admirable job of presenting a good overview of the many authors who fit into this [particular] niche.' Stuart Bentley, Reference Reviews

Book Description

This is the first introduction to the whole field of modern fantasy literature in the English-speaking world.
Only $5.95 a month for the first 4 months on Audible. Limited-time only.
