The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Fantasy
Carlton, 2006 - Literary Criticism - 304 pages

This encyclopedia divulges just what constitutes fantasy and where the parameters lie, and celebrates the finest and lesser-known works that make up the genre, be they books, movies, television shows or iconic images.
