Epic Fantasy

High fantasy or epic fantasy is a subgenre of fantasy that is set in invented or parallel worlds. High fantasy originated with the writings of William Morris, George MacDonald, and Lord Dunsany, and came to fruition through the work of authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis, whose major fantasy works were published in the 1950s. High fantasy, along with (Robert E. Howards) sword and sorcery, has become one of the two genres most commonly associated with the general term fantasy.

    Fate is a tricky animal. Those who believe they harness it, often find a difficult beast to master.
