Gormenghast. What to expect? Atmospheric? Creepy? Worth reading?
I want to make a 'good fantasy' collage because the current one is full of boring commercial trite, and fantasy's failure to respond negatively to shite is a big part of why it's looked down upon.
>Lord of the Rings
Thumbnails are problematic.
>BOTNS is considered sci-fi
It's kinda on the preciipice, and it's a perfect example of why 'genres' are really just aesthetic choices.
>nautical novel is an aesthetic
>magical realism is an aesthetic
>southern gothic is an aesthetic
>fantasy is an aesthetic.
The difference is that in the post-comiccon world, it's very easy for fantasy to serve purely commercial aims rather than artistic ones.
