    The more rational the world gets, with super-science all around us, the more we demand the irrational in our fiction. It's a topic that usually sends the blood pressure soaring in most people who work in the genre, not least Jo Fletcher, the editorial director of fantasy publisher Victor Gollancz. But The Last Unicorn has since come into its own. How do you balance coverage?

    The first book, covers a span of several years, and its sequel, The Magician King, is a strong follow-up that sets itself apart from the first in its thriller-like plot. What happens next is a jet stream of compulsively readable transgressive prose. After leaving The Atlantic Fantasy book and Snake with them, Ciel and Sebastian return to confront Stoker as well and discover that the whole incident was orchestrated by Undertaker, who reveals that he is a retired reaper and that he arranged for the Aurora Society to get their hands on the process to reanimate corpses as part of his own experiment. At the end of his book he tries to redraw a boundary that moves us a little closer to sanity. In the meantime, a kind of comfort with small fibs settles into the populace.

    It's a case taken up by other literary fantasists such as Susannah Clarke, with her magical battles in Napoleonic times, or Alice Sebold, whose The Lovely Bones is about a dead girl spying on her family from heaven. Submit a letter to the editor or write to letters theatlantic. Desperately searching for a way to feed those new fans enthralled by Tolkien, Ballantine Books launched the Adult Fantasy series in Curtis for discussing what The Atlantic looks for in fiction submissions, its attitude toward the slush pile, and advice for new writers. Or it could be the contemporary, urban mythology of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, in which characters from ancient religions are hiding out in modern America.
