I think as women we've always been very used to growing up reading and identifying with male protagonists, especially in fantasy. There's a saying in publishing that girls will read about boys, but boys will only read about boys, and it's important to give women strong heroines.
Fantasy is toxic: the private cruelty and the world war both have their start in the heated brain.
Heaven is on this earth. There are no angels on the clouds with twanging harps... That's just another man's fantasy.
Thank you... fantasy football draft, for letting me know that even in my fantasies, I am bad at sports.
There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you're involved in, whether it's a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agenst or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.
'The Golden Compass' became a bad experience because the studio didn't have faith in the strength of the ideas of the novel, which is ironic because it's one of the greatest fantasy novels ever written, if not the greatest, and they took the religion out of it and tried to turn it into a popcorn movie.
We love fantasy novels in which the characters think that they're peasants but turn out to be princes and kings.
Matthew Tobin Anderson
I try to stay focused on my life and do try not to be brought into the Hollywood fantasy.
Especially in the world of fantasy and superheroes, it's great to have role models that aren't in skimpy little outfits, in impossible poses. That's so important for young women.

Religion is doing; a man does not merely think his religion or feel it, he lives his religion as much as he is able, otherwise it is not religion but fantasy or philosophy.
The idea that women are innately gentle is a fantasy, and a historically recent one. Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction, is depicted as wreathed in male human skulls; the cruel entertainments of the Romans drew audiences as female as they were male; Boudicca led her British troops bloodily into battle.
I started making houses for ants because I thought they needed somewhere to live. Then I made them shoes and hats. It was a fantasy world I escaped to where my dyslexia didn't hold me back and my teachers couldn't criticize me. That's how my career as a micro-sculptor began.
All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable.
I come from musical theater, and a lot of musical theater is about accepting fantasy. I think it is more about just being open and accepting.
It didn't matter what we did or where we did it as long as we were together. We knew we'd found what most people either pursue in years of futile search or dismiss as a fantasy at the outset: the missing half of ourselves. The real thing.
John Perry Barlow
All fantasy should have a solid base in reality.
What I'm working on now - I'm back to fantasy, although considering that it's me, I'm turning it into a kind of science fantasy. It's a vampire story - but my vampires are biological vampires. They didn't become vampires because someone bit them; they were born that way.

When I started writing this, I found that I simply couldn't take fantasy seriously, so it became humorous, and continued from there.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
