Last year Reykjavik Grapevine published an interesting ‘state of the art’ article related to a genre that very few writers in Iceland have explored: fantasy. Which is weird, considering how rich in fantasy stories Icelandic history is: one can find remnants of it in ‘Lord Of The Rings’ as well as in countless video games, movies and so much more… but not very many Icelandic books. Among the top fantasy writers paving the way for the genre in Iceland, the article elaborates on Alexander Dan Vilhjálmsson, Hildur Knútsdóttir, Emil Hjörvar Petersen.
