Quote Wednesday — McKinley

09 May

“The great thing about fantasy is that you can drag dreams and longings and hopes and fears and strivings out of your subconscious and call them ‘magic’ or ‘dragons’ or ‘faeries’ and get to know them better.” — Robin McKinley

This imagery is just beautiful.  I see something like the pensieve from the Harry Potter books, except instead of memories, fully realized beings come out.  Fantasy is one of my favorite genres.  To get completely immersed in a new world filled with terrifying and wondrous creatures is heaven.  I absolutely loved McKinley’s novel Sunshine and definitely want to read more of her books.  Something tells me that I’m going to love them.
