Fantasy Tropes in Serious Literature!

"... it feels like I've stepped into a larger, ongoing debate about the role of fantasy tropes in what you might call "serious literature."  It reminds me to some extent of what was happening with sci-fi a couple decades ago. Since then, sci-fi has come much more into the mainstream and no one thinks twice about dystopian settings. But I can sense a frustration among certain writers who feel they haven't been allowed to use fantastical elements like dragons and things, and that there's a community of writers and readers out there who feel marginalized."
--Kazuo Ishiguro
