Fiction: Fantasy - General eBooks

Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting. Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic is common.

In popular culture, the genre of fantasy is dominated by its medievalist form. Fantasy has also included fairy tales, wizards, sorcerers, witchcraft, vampires, or other mythical creatures.

Fantasy is a vibrant area of academic study in a number of disciplines. Work in this area ranges widely, from the structuralist theory of Tzvetan Todorov, which emphasizes the fantastic as a liminal space, to work on the connections between medievalism and popular culture.
