Violence in fantasy: I’ve noticed that I prefer a certain amount of violence in my fantasy novels. Is the violence necessary to the milleu? It doesn’t have to be physical violence, one of the things I like about Ellen Kushner’s Swordspoint series and Melissa Scott’s Astreiant, is the kind of social violence that can be inflicted and those results.
So what do you think about violence in fantasy?
