1:30pm Irony in Fantasy

Featuring: Ninfa Hayes, Alicia Wright, R A Smith, David Lascelles, Tony Ballantyne, Miriam Khan

Although often seen as genre centred around the uncontrollable and irrational, Fantasy is often filled with orthodoxies of its own kind, rules which must be rigidly adhered to or else contravened at the peril of character and author alike. In this panel, we will be discussing how the rules of Fantasy – both as a genre and within fictional works themselves – can be bent and contravened, using irony to produce new worlds and scenarios that explore the paradoxes of Fantasy and indeed our own daily lives.
