Fantasy fiction book
In chapter 5 above, we suggested that literary fairytales tend, in general, to conform fairly closely to the constraints which guide realist fiction. The fairytale remains within one time, one space and one world, and tells its story largely in chronological order. The fictional world of the fairytale is infused with magic, but, once this is accepted, everything proceeds in a recognisably natural manner.
