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 "clichéd" 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.
