Looking for fantasy books hiding out in the non-genre section of the bookstore.
about science fiction in the general fiction section basically sums up my book preferences. But it focuses on science fiction, whereas I lean more toward fantasy. Lately it seems like there’s been a surge of fantasy fiction hiding in other sections—The Tiger’s Wife
, The Snow Child
, The Golem and the Jinni
, and no doubt plenty of others.
So, what other fantasy books (or authors) aren’t shelved in Fantasy?
