Rules in fantasy

"[A] great freedom of fantasy is that you can make up your own rules.  Once you've decided what they are, play fair:  don't keep changing them."
--Lisa Tuttle, Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction

Note:  A solid book  on the field.  The unique strength or value of this book is its analyses.  Her advice is familiar but when she breaks down her work or those of others, you'll want to listen.
