The Civilian Reader on The Secret History of Fantasy

A very thoughtful review of The Secret History of Fantasy has been posted on the Civilian Reader blog. The reviewer concludes: "This is a very well-done collection: the stories are all, in many different ways, pleasures to read."

However, she has some well-placed concerns about whether sword & sorcery fantasy deserves to be designated "clich├ęd" in order to privilege more literary forms of fantasy. Hopefully our June release, The Sword and Sorcery Anthology, will show off the actual breadth and strengths of the subgenre.
