The fantastic represents a wide and heterogeneous field in literary, cultural, and media studies. The contributors to this volume discuss current developments in theory and practice by offering enlightening snapshots of the contemporary Anglophone landscape of research in the fantastic and giving new impetus to its theoretical and methodological approaches, textual materials, main interests, and its crucial findings.
