Description

In a series of incisive interviews, Leonard S. Marcus engages thirteen master storytellers in spirited conversation
about their life and work, providing inspiring reading for fantasy fans and future writers alike.

What kind of child were you? When did you decide you wanted to be a writer? Why do you write fantasy?

"Fantasy," writes Leonard S. Marcus, "is storytelling with the beguiling power to transform the impossible into the
imaginable and to reveal our own ‘real' world in a fresh and truth-bearing light." Few have harnessed this power with
the artistry, verve, and imagination of the authors encountered in this compelling book. How do they work their magic?

Finely nuanced and continually revealing, Leonard S. Marcus's interviews range widely over questions of literary craft
and moral vision, as he asks thirteen noted fantasy authors about their pivotal life experiences, their literary
influences and work routines, and their core beliefs about the place of fantasy in literature and in our lives.
