It’s Friday, and that means it is time to announce our winners of our The Navidad Incident giveaway contest!
First up is SemperMeh for the point that a lot of the distinction between fantasy and magical realism is in the mind of the reader. Also he wrote in Spanish, and the word navidad is right in the title.
Moving on, there’s JM, who just sounded very clever, and who made a more sophisticated version of the argument that fantasy takes place in some other, often past, world.
We certainly don’t want to be seen as only selecting the responses that seemed to agree with our own comments, so Shelley wins a free copy as well for her spirited defense of considering magical realism a form of fantasy, and for her point about urban fantasy.
Our fourth winner is marco who looked very closely at two different modes of magical realism. If nothing else, he’ll certainly get a kick out of The Navidad Incident so we just had to send him a copy!
Those are your winners. Check back here soon for more controversy, and prizes!
