Hello. My name is Jonathan and this is my blog about ancient, medieval, and modern forms of literature that can be described as fantasy. I read very widely because I enjoy a wide range of writing, but somewhere in what I love best there is always what I think of as fantasy. I provide no definition of the word. The purpose of the blog is to think out loud about it, not to arrive at a conclusion nor even to produce an argument.
As for some vital statistics: I have spent a total of eleven years of my life – almost a third of it – in the study of literature at the post-secondary level. I was once poised to become a professional academic medievalist, but I screwed that up. Now I am a writer, or trying to be one. And I am a husband and a father.
