"Each lively and highly readable interview ends with advice to would-be writers. . . .An essential volume for fantasy readers of all ages." BOOKLIST (starred review) "Fantasy," writes Leonard S. Marcus, "is storytelling with the beguiling power to transform the impossible into the imaginable, and to reveal our own real world in a fresh and truth-bearing light." Few have harnessed this power with the artistry, verve, and imagination of the authors encountered in this compelling book. How do they work their magic? Leonard S. Marcus s incisive interviews range over questions of literary craft and moral vision as he asks thirteen noted fantasy authors about their pivotal life experiences, their literary influences and work routines, and their beliefs about the place of fantasy in literature and in our lives. Includes interviews with: Lloyd Alexander Franny Billingsley Susan Cooper Nancy Farmer Brian Jacques Diana Wynne Jones Ursula K. Le Guin Madeleine L Engle Garth Nix Tamora Pierce Terry Pratchett Philip Pullman Jane Yolen"
