This is an incredible interview with the reigning fantasist in literature right now.

“[Fantasy has] always had an underlying rhetoric of white supremacy, inherent conservatism,” Jemisin says. “There’s still a lot of crap out there, but I’m starting to see more and more fantasies that are getting back to the old days, before the Tolkien clones and endless guys in a hood. We’re starting to see big themes and stories of transformation. I’m looking forward to that. I actually really want to start reading fantasy again because I’m starting to see this.”
