Fantasy & Mythology

Like science fiction and horror, fantasy is a genre of speculative fiction that can include imaginary species (monstrous or benign) and settings with magical or supernatural elements. Sometimes authors include real-world settings as part of the story, but the themes and laws within the book’s universe do not have to align with real-world science.  Works of fantasy often include age-old mythology as part of the story, either as a small element or a major theme. Fantasy includes many sub-genres, such as high-fantasy and dark fantasy.
