With October’s Horror duo over with, I decided that it was time to shift gears again to focus on some of the background on Fantasy literature. I came across George MacDonald, a major influence in the early days of the Fantasy genre who inspired numerous authors that came after him. He’s not a household name like Mary Shelley, Jules Verne or H.G. Wells, but he was no less influential in his works, which went on to inspire authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
Go read Some Kind of Fairy Tale over on the Kirkus Reviews blog.
