what’s wrong with fantasy literature

What’s wrong with fantasy literature? As a whole? Well, based on my wide reading therein, but granting that I haven’t read much new fantasy in the past four years, the major problem with the genre is this: Really Dreadful Sex Scenes. And a reluctance to fade to black. Seriously: weird dodgy sex scenes are what you expect from weird dodgy fantasy novels, but even among the very best fantasy authors I’ve read, there’s this terrible weakness for Incredibly Cliche Magic Sex, or Over-Descriptive Anatomy, and various other sins.

There, O Google, is your answer.
