Good books. Great Stories. Fine Purpose.

Why We Love Fantasy Stories Soooo Much!

The Purpose of Fantasy: A Reader's Guide to Twelve Selected Books with Good Values and Spiritual Depth - Philip Martin

This weekend (Saturday through Monday, July 5–7), The Purpose of Fantasy is discounted to 99 cents.

It includes discussions of specific titles like The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis, The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle, and others (some labeled as children's books but enjoyed long into adulthood!).

It also discusses why fantasy is so beloved and influential in meaningful ways, drawing on thoughts by Tolkien, Chesterton, and others.

Happy 4th of July weekend!
