"Something Greater--an Epic Discussion of Epic Fantasy, Part 2" by Jeremy L.C. Jones is up at Clarkesworld Magazine. This is a mammoth discussion of epic fantasy by those who write it, with comments from such notable names as James Barclay, Elizabeth Bear, Terry Brooks, Trudi Canavan, Rowena Cory Daniells, David Anthony Durham, Kate Elliott, Steven Erikson, Ian C. Esslemont, Lynn Flewelling, Ed Greenwood, Erin Hoffman, John Jarrold, N. K. Jemisin, K. V. Johansen, J. V. Jones, Paul Kearney, Juliet McKenna, Robin McKinley, Peter Orullian, Robert V. S. Redick, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Gaie Sebold, Michael A. Stackpole, Victoria Strauss, and Gav Thorpe. I'm honored to have a quote in the opening paragraphs of both part one and part two.
