"Magical realism is a fiction genre in which magical elements blend to create a realistic atmosphere that accesses a deeper understanding of reality."
I recently discovered that this is my type of fantasy. I'm not keen on fantasy novels like Lord of the Rings. They're too far gone. I prefer magical things that happen in the real world. Like Pan's Labyrinth, Coraline, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
What type of fantasy do you like?
