The Weiser Book of the Fantastic and Forgotten

by Judika Illes

Fantastic tales are frequently referred to as weird tales. Techni­cally, they fall into the literary genre of weird fiction. Academia has now further classified weird fiction as a subgenre of speculative fic­tion, defined as any literary fiction containing elements, characters, plots, or settings deriving from speculative sources, as in the human imagination, as opposed to being based on everyday life or “reality.” Science fiction, horror, and fantasy are all categorized under the speculative fiction umbrella. 960 more words
