+ - Is the fantasy genre chronically misunderstood?->

Submitted by daria42
daria42 (866794) writes "The fantasy genre is chronically marginalised by its immature image by book critics and readers alike, fantasy author Janny Wurts has argued in a recent podcast interview. In the interview, Wurts slammed the idea that fantasy books, with their central swords, magic and dragon archetypes, are fiction for children or immature adults."
