Fantasy and Speculative Fiction in March

March 1, 2011

For the month of March discover fantasy and other speculative fiction. Immerse yourself in a fantasy novel (such as books by Brent Weeks, Garth Nix, Ursula LeGuin and Neil Gaiman) or gradually segue into this imaginary realm with crossover titles that have elements of fantasy (such as in magic realism and paranormal titles). You may even take this opportunity to explore fairy tales or enter the beguiling world of children’s fantasy fiction.

You can scare yourself with fantasy, explore amazing created worlds that exist because an author imagined strange and wonderful possibilities. Choose to have a dragons, elves and dwarves take you over in this month of fantasy reading. The possibilities are almost endless.

If you would like to share your favourite speculative fiction reading experiences, you can tweet while you read by adding the hashtag #specfic to your twitter posts about reading. You can also use this tag on other websites like flickr, or on your blog – to share with us what you are reading. And if you want to keep your fantasy reading private – download an ebook.

There will be a twitter discussion 8.00pm (AEST) 29 March to discuss #specfic. See you online at the end of the month!
