17707Why we read fantasy...
- Jul 2, 2011My other favorite author after Anne is Jacqueline Carey. She recently wrote
a piece on why we read fantasy as a rebuttal to some reviews that came out
pre-Game of Thrones HBO show: Before the Game of Thrones HBO series came
out, there were several bad reviews of it based pretty much on the fact that
it was fantasy. (A particularly nasty and dismissive one comes to mind.)
Jacqueline Carey wrote a lovely piece on her website for her July update
about why we read fantasy and who the fantasy lovers are. I thought it was
especially appropriate for the GeekGirls who read fantasy.
Anyway, I wanted to share it with this group because even if you aren't a
Jacqueline Carey fan, you are a fantasy fan.
