- This Month’s Topic = Hard Fantasy: When an author applies logic and rules into creating a Magic System that the world and its characters strictly follow to conduct magical feats. Instead of only focusing on expanding the world through multiple books they also focus within and dig deeper into why and how things work. Some examples are: Wheel of Time series, Lord of the Rings, The Way of the King or The Dying Earth.
