"With its intuitive, rather than rational, approach, Fantasy fiction describes a world that never could exist, one where magic rules. Fantasy fiction deals more with emotions and relationships than ideas, and Fantasy cherishes and preserves familiar stories, legends, and myths, retelling them, sometimes with a twist. These are often elegantly written stories with a haunting quality, with something just behind the story, something bigger than the story itself that hints at a larger meaning."
