Author: Gini Scott
Fantasy! The very word conjures images of escape from reality, from the mundaneness of ordinary daily life. Fantasy Worlds combines a look at the psychology and power of fantasy with profiles of a dozen groups of individuals exploring different types of fantasy. While some play with fantasy as an occasional release, others turn fantasy into an ongoing lifestyle that adds spice to their everyday routines. The groups featured include those with members who enjoy role-playing and other games, participate in fantasy parties, travel into past and future eras, explore offbeat adventures, and experiment with erotic fantasy games. It concludes with a discussion of how many individuals use fantasy for personal growth on their own or in role-playing groups. Besides illustrating some popular fantasies, the book shows how we all need some fantasy in our lives; how we are all fantasy seekers.
