“The oldest kind of tale” March 9, 2006

This quote is from Patricia A. McKillip, who is one of the best fantasists around. If you’re looking for sensawunda, pick up ANYTHING she’s written.

At its best, fantasy rewards the reader with a sense of wonder about what lies within the heart of the commonplace world. The greatest tales are told over and over, in many ways, through centuries. Fantasy changes with the changing times, and yet it is still the oldest kind of tale in the world, for it began once upon a time, and we haven’t heard the end of it yet.
