The purpose of Reading the Fantastic Imagination: The Avatars of a Literary Genre is the observation of the very hybridity of the fantastic genre, as a typical postmodern form. The volume continues an older project of the editor and a large number of the contributors, that of investigating the current status of several popular genres, from historical fiction to romance. The scrutiny continues in this third volume, dedicated to the fantastic imagination and the plethora of themes, moods, media, and formats deriving from it. FanLit is surely trendy, even if it is not highbrow, despite its noble ancestry. This apparent paradox characterizes many of the literary genres en vogue today, from historical fiction to romance. This very contradiction forms part of the basis for this book. After the success of the previous book in the series dedicated to a “borderline” literary genre – Romance: The History of a Genre was declared by Cambridge Scholars Publishing as the Critics’ Choice Book of the Month in January 2013 – this collection of studies about the fantastic imagination takes a further step into completing a larger research project which seeks to investigate the varieties of popular fiction. Although all contributors in the series teach canonical literary texts, they did not hesitate to plunge into the opposite area of fictional work and, moreover, continued doing so even though such a project caused the “raise of a few (high)brows,” (Percec 2012, 232) as argued in the Endnote of Romance: The History of a Genre.

The Future Of Post Human Martial Arts

Is it really true that martial arts, in spite of their popularity in this day and age of ours, have, at their deepest level, the promised land of self-knowledge, the expression of beauty, or something highly spiritual to be pursued for the human soul? Or, to put it in a different way, what exactly makes martial arts so amazing that, somehow, they will eventually lead the practitioners to the spiritual realm of self-cultivation in its highest depth? Contrary to the conventional wisdom about martial arts as held by many over the ages, this popular view about martial arts has become so legendary that their dark sides have yet to be systematically explored and that the lofty aims of martial arts are neither possible nor desirable to the extent that their proponents would like us to believe. Of course, this is not to say that the very tradition of martial arts is absolutely useless, or that the literature on martial arts hitherto existing in history is spiritually unworthy to be appreciated. Instead, this book constructively offers an alternative (better) way to understand the nature of martial arts, in special relation to the body and spirit of warriorswhile learning from different views in the literature, without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, as they are not necessarily compatible with each other), and, in the end, transcending them towards a new horizon not conceived before. This seminal view, if proven valid, will fundamentally change the legendary way that people have thought about martial artsfrom the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what I originally called its post-human fate. _________

Superheroes play an important role in children's games. The youngest children like to identify with the superheroes who fascinate and bring young and old together. From an early age, children live with all kinds of superheroes, both on the screen and in everyday life. The superhero represents power, authority, and in this sense, parents are the first superheroes of the toddlers. But soon, fictional heroes will take their place, as they embody a fascinating fantasy world. Who hasn't dreamt of flying, of moving at the speed of light or of being endowed with superhuman strength? Thus, superheroes are synonymous with perseverance in the eyes of the youngest, and they show them that anything is possible. So give your children a coloring book to put themselves in the shoes of a superhero and stimulate their imagination.
