Contemporary Fantasy 

Contemporary, or "modern," fantasy is set in the real world during the present day. In addition to drawing upon traditional European fantasy tropes, many writers also use or adapt multicultural mythologies to drive the narrative. Urban fantasy books fall under contemporary fantasy, but the tremendous popularity of urban fantasies warrants separating them into their own subgenre.

A well-known contemporary fantasy writer is Neil Gaiman.

Book Country's genre map will continue to change as new literary categories emerge and others fall out of fashion. If you write contemporary fantasy, explore this genre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
