It lingers and lurks around every corner, waiting to dig its claws into the next unsuspecting victim. Hanging back in the shadows, it waits for an unsuspecting and wide-eyed person to wander into its midst…. What is it?
The genre, along with its blurry-edged step-sibling, Sci-Fi, have been captivating imaginations worldwide for decades. It is a staple genre and one that I feel will survive anything.
As a follow up to the fairly popular topic I posted recently, Is YA Fantasy Taking Over, I add these thoughts about plain ‘ol fantasy!
Will the genre ever decrease in popularity? I don’t think so. Just like the super hero and zombie genres, they will remain constant. Why, you may ask? In my humble opinion, the fans of these genres are ‘lifers’. They remain unwavering in their commitment to the genre and will never lose interest, no matter their age, workload, responsibilities or income.
What do you think?
See you in Wothlondia! Cheers!
