fantasy that's off the beaten track

At fantasywithbite we try to steer clear of the mainstream fantasy doorstopper series by the likes of Jordan, Eddings and Brooks. We concentrate on fantasy that’s a little different, by authors like Mary Gentle, Tim Powers, China Miéville, Guy Gavriel Kay, M. John Harrison, Tanith Lee, Robert Holdstock, Storm Constantine, Clive Barker, Charles de Lint, Neil Gaiman, Michael Moorcock, Michael Swanwick, Mervyn Peake, etc. We also discuss magic realism and other similar work - writers like Borges, Italo Calvino and Angela Carter.

This is very much NOT a forum for discussions of Tolkien, or Epic Fantasy in general, or commercial fantasy authors like Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Terry Brooks, etc. In fact we’re a fantasy community in which Tolkien is off-topic!

We pride ourselves on our polite sorting techniques and our welcoming attitudes towards all students. Will you be a Gryffindor Lion ~ brave and brash and bold? Perchance a Hufflepuff Badger ~ loyalty, hardworking and unafraid of toil? Maybe a Ravenclaw Eagle ~ witty and intelligent and a razor-sharp tongue? Or, perhaps your blood is true and Salazar Slytherin is looking for you to join his Snakes ~ cunning and ambitious to say the least? Apply today and join in the fun!
