For Writers: Urban Fantasy vs. Magical Realism


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?
