Faeries and Folklore – Part One: An Introduction

Faeries and Folklore – Part One: An Introduction 

We’re going to talk about faeries. For the purposes of both my sanity and authenticity, leave any and all notions of Disney’s Tinker Bell at the door. Tinker Bell is a pretty fiction dreamed up in order to invite little girls to dress in frilly gowns that glitter and sparkle in the sun. Faeries are […]

Harry Potter Should Have Kissed Some Boys: An Argument For Queer Characters In Main Stream Fantasy

Harry Potter Should Have Kissed Some Boys: An Argument For Queer Characters In Main Stream Fantasy 

Harry Potter should have kissed some boys. Or Hermione should have kissed some girls. Even just some passing lip-action between any of the main cast would have been sufficient. Even just an obvious and mentioned crush would have been better than the great hunk of nothing we were dealt. Not fantastic for representation of a […]

Languages In Fantasy

Languages In Fantasy 

Language in fantasy: is it an outdated, often academically-gratuitous addition that bogs down a story and its world, or a clever quirk of setting that adds a sprinkle of the exotic and aids reader immersion?

Mythology in Urban Fantasy

Mythology in Urban Fantasy 

I’ve talked before about creating a mythology using fantasy, and I’ve delved a little into world mythology and folklore through various articles on dragons, demons, fae, and magic, but this time I want a different spin. Mythology is all about the past: legend, folklore and tales that were somehow brought into being by our ancestors […]

Evelyn Skye Interview

Evelyn Skye Interview 

Evelyn Skye’s hotly-anticipated debut, The Crown’s Game, is due out in the spring. Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the Tsar needs […]

In The Mix: Fantasy and Other Genres

In The Mix: Fantasy and Other Genres 

Fantasy is a genre that assimilates elements of other genres, whilst still remaining, for the most part, a genre not often thought of as having a great number of “crossovers” and hybrids. Strictly speaking, this is changing with the natural evolution of the genre. SFF as a whole is growing more diverse and this results […]
