A lot of people say they hate fantasy, and never read it. I think this comes from exposure to fantasy of the kind represented by Throne of Games.
Don’t accuse me of exaggerating. There really are fantasies featuring characters with names that sound like bathroom products. And there are a lot of fantasies that are just plain awful.
Me, I dunno: some readers are crazy for Russian novels, and those are full of names that are much harder for English-speakers to handle than anything in Tolkien. Yeahbut, yeahbut! Those names are real names! What–you mean “Maalox” isn’t? You need to get out more.
