Peter V. Brett (Barren), Rena Barron (Kingdom of Souls), S.A. Chakraborty (The Empire of Gold), R.F. Kuang (The Dragon Republic), R.A. Salvatore (Relentless) discuss literary fantasy, which provides a multiverse of fictional prisms, imagined against mythic elements, world folklore, and reimaginings of actual history. At the heart of the fantasy realm typically lies some form of magic, often there are magical creatures, and the standard are quests - whether they be for good, or for ill. Join these masters of the genre to discuss the works that inspired them, and how their own works contribute to enriching the scope of modern fantasy. Moderated by Natasha Bardon (publishing director, Harper Voyager U.K.)
