I started reading fantasy back as a kid – drawn into it with The Hobbit. The wonder of the book drove me to read LOTR and then jump into other books written by Patricia McKillip, Anne MacCaffrey, Terry Brooks and many others over the years. Fantasy has changed over that time so that it has many sub-genres under its umbrella. So here’s several questions for you to consider with an answer in the comment section below:
What drew you to read fantasy?
What fantasy books did you read first?
How old were you when you first started reading fantasy?
What authors influenced you the most from the fantasy genre?
How much fantasy do you read these days?
Of course, you don’t have to answer just the questions to leave a comment. If you have anything else regarding fantasy on your mind, feel free to share your thoughts.
I’m P. H. Solomon and I live in the greater Birmingham, AL area. I strongly dislike yard work and sanding the deck rail. However, I perform such duties to maintain a nice home for my loved ones as well as the family’s German Shepherds. In my spare time, I ride herd as a Computer Whisperer on large computers called servers (harmonica not required). Additionally, I enjoy reading, running, most sports and fantasy football. Having a degree in Anthropology, I also have a wide array of more “serious” interests in addition to working regularly to hone my writing. My third book of The Bow of Hart Saga fantasy series, The White Arrow, will be released October 2017. I’m also a contriubtor to Story Empire and a member of Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).
