Recommended Fantasies

A short list of my recent fantasy book and film discoveries:
  • Solstice Wood by Patricia A. McKillip is a lovely story about the boundaries between reality and fantasy. This book won the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature at Mythcon earlier this year.
  • Night at the Museum is a delightful father-and-son film (now on DVD) about a museum that comes to life after dark.
  • The Thief Lord is a family-friendly story (also now on DVD) about a band of children who have a magical adventure in Venice, Italy.
