Fantasy books have their beginnings rooted in myth and legend, generally having storylines based around magic and the supernatural. Fairy tales were the forerunners of fantasy writing as we know it today. Indeed, inspiration from mythology and folklore are the basis of many of today's fantasy movie screenplays. Modern fantasy stories also feature imaginary worlds, dimensions, realms and beings: elves, dwarves and goblins for instance. While the protagonists and main characters fantasy novels can be humanlike in form, fantastical beings and magical creatures are often integrated into fantasy plots. Unlike science fiction, which makes use of actual scientific principles, technology and probabilities. There are many sub-genres of fantasy available on obooko, including:
  • Dark Fantasy
  • Epic Fantasy
  • Sword and Sorcery
  • Romance Fantasy
  • Heroic Fantasy
  • High Fantasy
  • Modern Fantasy
  • Alternative History
  • Arthurian Fantasy
  • Comic Fantasy
  • Mystery Fantasy
  • Magic Realism
Tales of orcs and dwarves and dragons in worlds from the imagination of the author. Fantasy books take us to magical places with wonderful creatures and tell stories of adventure and quests and great battles.

Fantasy stories have similar themes running through them. They are normally set in a world very different from our own and will often be inhabited by dwarves, elves, orcs, goblins and humans. It's very common that there is some form of magic and wizards or witches wielding this power. The author draws you into this world with great descriptions allowing us to build up the picture in our minds.

Expect a hero or a group of heroes fighting for good against evil and journeys across dangerous lands to find magical items. There will be bold actions and sacrifices to be made all in the name of the quest.

Fantasy fiction can be traced back to the mid 19th century but didn't really stop being considered a children's book until later in the 20th century. The 1960s was the time when fantasy started to grow in popularity.

One of the great examples of fantasy fiction is the work of JRR Tolkien. In particular his Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit are fantastic pieces of work made famous by the blockbuster movies of recent years. They contain all the classic elements of a fantasy novel but with a depth of detail and wonderful description. There are quests and elves and halflings, dwarves, wizards, kings and queens. Orcs and goblins are the suitably evil soldiers of the dark lords for our band of outnumbered heroes to valiantly fight against.

In modern times a fantasy series that was considered for children but read by many adults was the hugely successful Harry Potter series from J. K. Rowling. There was a time in the 2000s when it seemed like every person on the train to the office was reading one of the Harry Potter books. And the successful Hollywood movies increased the appetite for fantasy novels.

An alternative to the classic fantasy book is where fantasy and humour have been combined. Terry Pratchett achieved this with his Discworld series building tales in a crazy over the top fantasy world and poking fun at our real world. A world that sits on a disc atop four elephants, in turn standing on the back of a turtle that swims through space and time. There are wizards, witches, gods, luggage with feet and an array of unlikely heroes.

Reading fantasy fiction has always been popular, but is becoming more so now because of the rise in fantasy movies that attract a new, younger audience to the genre; for instance The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, both penned by JRR Tolkien. And, the fabulous Game of Thrones written by George RR Martin. While the books rely on the reader's imagination to help develop characters and environments, the movie versions can bring to life the author's vision in totally new and exciting ways; especially with the use of CGI. So, reading words is different to watching pictures, but the essence of the fantasy writer's storytelling comes to life in your mind either way. As an obooko member, which do you prefer?
