Dico S.F. – Fantasy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Fantasy is a literary genre characterised by a supernatural appearance in every day’s life, with a strong mythical dimension and frequent recourse to magic.

Unlike Fantastic, the Fantasy’s supernatural isn’t necessarily badly lived by the protagonists, but accepted and being integral part of the world where the characters develop.

Matching words : Dark Fantasy, Fantastic, Heroic Fantasy, Light Fantasy, Space Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery

Exemples :

  • The Lord of the Rings, by J. R. R. Tolkien
  • Conan the barbarian, by Robert E. Howard
  • Excalibur, directed by John Boorman
  • Lanfeust de Troy, French comic books by Christophe Arleston and Didier Tarquin

A rustic setting always suggests fantasy; to suggest science fiction, you need sheet metal and plastic. You need rivets
