Fantasy Fiction is what we usually just refer to as 'fantasy'; we refer to it as Fantasy Fiction since we require a Wiki Name. It is a genre of Speculative Fiction, differing from Science Fiction in that the speculation need not have any grounding in reality whatsoever. Many Science Fiction readers mistakenly assume that all Fantasy Fiction is Sword And Sorcery; they should read some Good Fantasy Writers and revise their opinions.
There is a considerable amount of very strong Childrens Fantasy Fiction; disproportionately more than there is Childrens Science Fiction. Why this should be so is a perennial topic of discussion.
This is how we wrangle 'fantasy' into a Wiki Name. I don't like it, you don't like it, nobody likes it; it is, nonetheless, the least worst solution. -- TA
