Join in a Fantasy Goodreads Discussion

Join the conversation over at Goodreads . . . Why must we compare in fantasy?

Legends of Windemere

Ionia has started a discussion on the Prodigy of Rainbow Tower Goodreads site.  The question is:

Why must we compare in fantasy?

We’ve all heard the ‘can this guy beat this guy’ or ‘that guy is like this guy because of this’.  For example, a female warrior gets the Xena treatment.  Most halfling heroes are either Frodo or Bilbo in people’s eyes.  Why does this happen so much in fantasy?

Descended of pirates and revolutionaries, Katie Sullivan is a lover and student of all things Irish. Born in the States, she is a dual US/Irish citizen, and studied history and politics at University College, Dublin – although, at the time, she seriously considered switching to law, if only so she could attend lectures at the castle on campus. She lives in Milwaukee with her daughter, two cats and a pesky character in her head named D (but you can call him Dubh). Her first series, The Changelings Saga, a young adult historical fantasy trilogy is available on Amazon. She can be found writing with said character at her blog, The D/A Dialogues.
