Yet half the time I read a discussion of what fantasy isn't doing but maybe could, I think, well, hell, I'm doing that. But I didn't think about it that way. I didn't notice that other people weren't doing the thing that looked natural to me. I just kind of did something in the background with technology or with forms of government or heaven knows what, because that was what belonged there, and the thing I was actually thinking about was something completely different. Like narwhals.
That first sentence up there? It is no longer anything but an excuse to read lots of books.
