Fantasy has become a dominant mode of storytelling and it mirrors our experiences and anxieties better than any representation of the merely real. This book poses two central questions about fantastic storytelling: how can it be meaningful if it doesn't claim to represent things as they are, and what kind of change can it make in the world?About the Author
