Times Online: Fantasy’s darkest arts make for a bestseller

Terry Pratchett writes to the Sunday Times defending the fantasy genre: “Rowling says that she didn’t realise that the first Potter book was fantasy until after it was published. I’m not the world’s greatest expert, but I would have thought that the wizards, witches, trolls, unicorns, hidden worlds, jumping chocolate frogs, owl mail, magic food, ghosts, broomsticks and spells would have given her a clue?” (via MetaFilter)
