Re: What *is* High Fantasy?
I know this thread is starting to show its age, but I just found it.
@J.D.: Thanks for your insight on definitions. My only completed fantasy novel I have never hesitated to call "epic," but never one saw fit to call it "high." I had definite images of the usage of those terms but not the words to express them, rather like a toddler who can tell a he from a she but unable to articulate the difference. You were able to distinguish them quite clearly, and in agreement with my perceptions.
