Fantasy is a genre that uses magic and other supernatural forms as a primary element of plot, theme, and/or setting. Fantasy is generally distinguished from science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of technological and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three (collectively known as speculative fiction or science fiction/fantasy)

In its broadest sense, fantasy comprises works by many writers, artists, filmmakers, and musicians, from ancient myths and legends to many recent works embraced by a wide audience today, including

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)

    More Good Minds Suggest…
    Dr. Seuss
    I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
    Dr. Seuss

    Lloyd Alexander
    Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.
    Lloyd Alexander
