      My dissertation was on landscape and movement between the real world and the fantastic world in OF romance. The key idea was that the landscape gave clues as to whether the hero was still in the real world or had moved into fantastic space and from there into the supernatural. Here are some of the articles and works I used to construct an understanding of the landscape through which protagonists move on their way to the otherworld, whether that be fantastic or supernatural in nature. Of particular interest is the Saunders work on forests.

      Does anyone know of any books (or even published articles) written on the importance of landscape in fantasy? I'm sure there must be some out there, but a quick trawl of Amazon and ABE failed to find me any.

        Would listfolk like to offer their nominations for films that prove that the motion picture may be an art form truly worthy of the fantastic imagination?
