Document Summary

Lecture # 4 oct 6 th - worlds alongside our own: moonheart = one of the most influential contemporary urban fantasy novels; he moved to a much grittier fantasy that reaches out to our world. Urban fantasy: stories in which fantasy and the mundane world intersect and interweave throughout a tale which is significantly about a real city; main difference is that the setting in the city. Crosshatch: the intermixing of reality b/w the mundane (the world we recognize) world and the marvellous world. The sites where these worlds overlap and locations of a particular power and potential; E. g the tamson house is the epicentre of crosshatch power. Invites transformations, quests, dislocations and disruptions of normalcy and expectation = where the crosshatch takes place, that will be where all the weird shit happens. Intrusion fantasy: works with the assumption that normality is organized and the intrusion of the fantastic is disruptive to that sense of order.
