Lisa Tuttle: From alternative histories to legendary countries, time travellers to haunted houses, here are the best fantasy books for people who don't like dragons or sexy vampires
From this list, I don't know Jonathan Carroll's The Land of Laughs, Graham Joyce's The Silent Land, and Allison Uttley's A Traveler in Time. Anyone here read them? Any thoughts? (Or about any of the other books on the list?) Any titles you might add, given the premise of the list, as stated by the author: "there have always been fantasy novels that break the mould, and it's these more distinctive, individual explorations of the fantastic that are my favourites. So, if you think you don't like fantasy – or even if you do – check these out. They don't have dragons or sexy vampires, but they're filled with real magic"?
