Quotes 44

“Fantasy writing must be grounded in both truth and life experience if it is to work. It can be as inventive and creative as the writer can make it, a whirlwind of images and plot twists, but it cannot be built on a foundation of air. The world must be identifiable with our own, must offer us a frame of reference we can recognize.”

“Fantasy stories work because the writer has interwoven bits and pieces of reality with imagination to form a personal vision.”

(Terry Brooks)
