For the love of fantasy

July 27, 2009

More than a little miffed that I couldn’t get to COMIC-CON this year, I consoled myself instead with a visit to the Bristol Renaissance Faire down on the Illinois border. The Bristol Renfaire is one of the more highly regarded Renfaires in the country (or so I’m told). It truly is a fun day out, and particularly amusing one to me because it’s really a warped version of what America thinks historical Europe was like.

But I’m not going to be a history snob about that and here’s why…

…because fantasy is where it’s really at.

And to see this many people gathered in the name of fantasy truly does the ailing heart of a speculative fiction writer some good!
