  1. I just found your blog through a search for “Fantasy” on WordPress. I like Stardust on so many levels. I picked it up because I saw the movie and thought it was interesting, and as so often happens, I enjoyed the movie but the book was even better. He’s kind of in your face about the fantasy, daring you to say it “isn’t true, couldn’t happen.” I had the same reaction to Orson Scott Card’s Enchantment. I want it to be true, so that is a quality I admire.
    Headed over to introduce myself on your “About” page, but when I saw this post I had to comment. Beth

    • Glad to you found me Beth.
      I don’t think I’ve actually read Gaiman, it liked the movie Stardust and really liked MirrorMask. I’ve been heavily reading Urban fantasy a few years, maybe it’s time to revisit fantasy genre. Urban Fantasy and the real world can be pretty grim a fantasy break might be good for me.
