I’ve spoken before as to why this genre has a special place in my heart, but like all genres, there are sub-genres to consider!  Over the years, I’ve actually come to love a few different aspects of fantasy… but my first love was epic fantasy.  These intense tales with intricate created worlds, mythical creatures, and magical systems have always tickled my imagination.
