Fantasy Gifts that will inspire us all and bring our imaginations alive. Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary plot element, theme store, or setting. Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic and magical creatures are now common. Fantasy is generally distinguished from the genres of science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three, all of which are subgenres of speculative fiction. In popular culture, the fantasy genre is predominantly of the medievalist form, especially since the worldwide success of The Lord of the Rings and related books by J. R. R. Tolkien. In its broadest sense, however, fantasy comprises works by many writers, artists, filmmakers, and musicians, from ancient myths and legends to many recent works embraced by a wide audience today.
