Portal Fantasy

| |

You may have read “portal fantasy” without realizing it: it’s a type of fantasy that begins in the real world, but then a character enters a fantastical world through some type of portal: a door, a set of standing stones, a magic book, or even the back of a wardrobe (sound familiar?). They may enter a magical land, like Narnia or Fillory, or travel in time. As Alix E. Harrow’s January Scaller observes in The Ten Thousand Doors of January, “You see, doors are many things….But more than anything else, doors are change.” Step through, and explore a new world.
