Gwenda Bond on literary fantasy: “To many, this is far from a new development. The blurring of borders signals a return to a broader idea of literature. ‘Great writers have been incorporating fantasy, science fiction and horror in their fiction for a very long time,’ says Tina Pohlman, editorial director of Harcourt’s Harvest imprint. But she concedes, ‘I realize that the contemporary literary world tends to equate literary fiction with narrative realism, so maybe there is something in the air.'”
