fantasy book discussions

fantasywithbite is a group for the discussion of the kind of fantasy fiction that tends to get ignored on most fantasy forums and communities. Fantasy that’s off the beaten track to some extent. We won’t be discussing Tolkien, and we won’t be discussing commercial doorstopper fantasy like The Wheel of Time, or Dungeons & Dragons tie-in books. We will discuss just about every other variety of fantasy literature (and occasionally films) that you can think of. Fantasy authors like Tim Powers, China Miéville, Tanith Lee, Guy Gavriel Kay, Mary Gentle, etc, plus magic realism, slipstream, weird fiction, the New Weird, even gothic and surrealism. Books that blur the boundaries between fantasy and science fiction and between fantasy and other genres will also be subjects for discussion.
