Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Comparing various fantasy fiction stories, this book shows that it is not the tropes and clichés that make a story good or bad but how the author applies them. The book also explores the concept of text versus meta-text—that is, when the story’s world and character actions contradict the reader’s expectations based on the tropes being used. Covering authors from Mercedes Lackey and Brandon Sanderson to Christopher Paolini and Stephenie Meyer, the author finds that it is the nature of tropes and the language used that make a fantasy story, for bad or good.

Book excerpt: The antecedents of fantasy literature extend back to the very beginnings of storytelling itself, but modern fantasy became recognizable as a distinct literary form only in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with the publication of the novels of William Morris and the short stories of Lord Dunsany. The emphasis by these writers and their successors on ideal and sometimes less than ideal places and peoples who exist only in a realm of pure imagination laid the foundation for later works by J. R. R. Tolkien and many others. Book jacket.

They are exactly what she uses in writing her own novels and what she teaches in her writing courses at the University of Oklahoma. Along with explaining story construction step-by-step, Chester illustrates each technique with examples drawn from both traditional and urban fantasy. The technique chapters include exercises to assist novices in mastering the craft of writing fantasy as well as suggestions for avoiding or solving plot problems.

"...To be honest this is not the kind of book I usually read, but, the premise was interesting, and I thought I would give it a try, I am glad I did, the story was good and kept me interested until the end. Parallel universes, alternate realities, reincarnation, time travel, jealousy, and experiencing more than one life at the same time. This book has it all." "...I thoroughly enjoyed all three books. Great characters, great story. Love the use of technology to add music to the e-book." "...I liked the use of different theories to explain the actions of the characters and the inclusion of links to certain songs as they played into the storyline. It added the possibility of the reader experiencing the books events both in their minds and externally at the same time if they chose. I do believe this was the best novel of the three." "...I'm a big fan of fantasy and adventure books, so I knew this series was perfect for my tastes. After reading all 3 books in the series, I've come to the realization that this is a great book for any fantasy book fans. The author develops a great story and its a wonderful read." " ...I would say get all three and read them through. I did, in less than a week. It was a book I could sink my teeth into and not a struggle to focus. Highly recommend!." "...This is the third book of this series from this outstanding author. He definitely lets his imagination continue to flow and allows us to see even deeper in! This book keeps you wanting to know more even better than the first two of the series! Great great fantasy reading!." "...My husband didn't want to read it by the description at first, but I urged him to just try it. It's now one of his favorites! He's even gone back and read the first two in the series, although you can keep up even if you haven't. I did read them first and am glad I did." Author's Description The year is 2050, 38 years after the debacle created by the Demon Seth, the Earth is on a crash course in more than one reality.
