Fantasy and horror novels - Do you think they're the same? December 07, 2004 6:40 PM

Some fantasy and horror novels seem to run the same vien when you read them. They take you to incredible places and after you've finished, you wonder where the author got that idea. But then with some horror, it can sometimes happen; and in fantasy it never can. What is your opinion; are they linked in one or another? Or should they be separate?  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I think that it all depends on the book. Imajica, by a "horror" novelist,Clive Barker, is a fantasy novel. Nothing in the material, would i consider horror. And the same holds true with Harry Harrison's West of Eden Trilogy. They are based on a fanstasy idea, without horror in play. Is a vampire book both horror and fantasy, well, depends on your view. In the Vampire Chronicles, by Anne Rice, I would have to say that it is in the romantic fantasy genre. Can horror be fantasy? Certainly, look at It by Stephen King. A made up fantasy character used to scare. But can all horror be fantasy, not necessarily, Misery by Stephen King and Silence of the Lambs books by Thomas Harris, these books are based on horrific things that humans are capable of doing. So, I guess it is all based on how the reader interprets the book.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
