Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Therese Woodson:
I’d love to talk more about Urban Fantasy – what classifies something as urban fantasy vs magical realism vs regular fantasy.
This is a topic near and dear to my own heart – as I write a bit of both. I’d say urban fantasy presupposes a whole magical framework in our world, while magical realism is more subtle – almost a heightened reality.
So my questions today – how do you define Urban Fantasy? How do you define Magical Realisim? And how do you think they are different from one another?
