For whatever reason, fantasy fiction has settled into the quasi-medieval, with magic, wizards and all that. I think it’s more than that, it’s magic grounded in a certain logic. It creates rules. You can’t just have magic to zap you out of trouble whenever you need it. ~ Matthew Reilly ~ Matthew Reilly is an action/thriller author from Australia. He describes his novels as being fantasy fiction or science fiction. The quote above was taken from a radio interview he gave on ABC1.
