“The best fantasy is written the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real…for the moment at least… that long magic moment before we wake.  

Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli…fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer.”  


~George R. R. Martin
