Of necessity list-based, this was still a fascinating look at the world of Fantasy. The authors looked at all types of fantasy, including novels, magazines, TV, films and games. They also covered the fantasy authors, the worlds they created, and the characters. A wonderful introduction for anyone interested in the subject, or for ideas for where to start if you are new to it.
