If you listen to some segments of the industry, interest in epic fantasy has dwindled. Certainly it doesn’t dominate the current market like the paranormal and urban fantasy stories, yet it is one of my favorite fantasy sub-genres and observation suggests many others share my interest.
I’m curious to see if that is the case and to find out what types of fantasy others read and enjoy. So I created a poll with an assortment of subgenres. Lines between categories can be blurry and not everyone defines subgenres in the same way, but the results should still be interesting. You can choose ALL the options you enjoy reading, and (if you want) leave a comment listing which ones are your favorites. If I’ve neglect a subgenre you love, please mention it.
One more question–would you be interested in reading some posts exploring various fantasy subgenres in the future?
