James Stoddard, the High House

March 25th, 2014 by G.

May I make a book recommendation? I just finished reading a fantasy in the old style, where peace and right and order are restored by the end. It’s James Stoddard’s The High House.

It was also, without being ostentatious about it, a pious book, about how the ordinary rituals of our lives reflect and maintain the whole of the universe.
There is even one scene that will strike the alert reader as curiously Mormon.

So Aslan smites his enemies hip and thigh? I’d read it. Except that’s pretty much already in the Christian Narnia.

What is fantasy fiction?

February 25th, 2010 by G.

If the Mormon Review ever gets around to publishing my essay on The Great Divorce, you’ll find that Overstreet’s definition of what’s important about fantasy is what I was trying to get at. (more…)
