Why I Love Fantasy

As a Serious Adult ™, the Good Reason to read and write fantasy fiction is to distance yourself from mundane political bullshit to deal with larger human issues. You can talk about racism involving elves with less nonsense than if you were to talk about anti-black racism. The same is true with every issue of any consequence to humanity. Love, power, hate, progress, greed, desire, and all the things I’ve neglected to mention can be more easily discussed in an abstract when we know it’s not real.
