Summary: "Comparing various fantasy fiction stories, this book shows that it is not the tropes and clich├ęs that make a story good or bad but how the author applies them. The book also explores the concept of text versus meta-text--when the story's world and character actions contradict the reader's expectations based on the tropes being used"--
