The Secret History of Fantasy

Discover The Secret History of Fantasy: ”Fantasy is more than just sword-and-sorcery novels of epic adventures. Here are innovative tales where mythology, fairy tales, and archetypes are re-imagined into a new style of storytelling. Anthologist Peter S Beagle knows fantasy. The author of the inventive fantasy novel, The Last Unicorn introduces the gifted writers that returned to the classics and thoroughly redefined the genre: Gregory Maguire, Francesca Lia Block, Robert Holdstock, Patricia McKillip, Steven Millhauser, and others who have lead the way to expanding imaginative frontiers. From the depths of an dangerous English forest to the top of the Tower of Babel, on a caffeinated journey to the empire of ice cream and in front of a television with the Lone Ranger and Tonto, discover The Secret History of Fantasy.”
