LOL YES.




I think there’s a pretty logical explanation for this that’s not prejudiced. Early fantasy writers like Lord Dunsany, E.R. Eddison, Evangeline Walton, Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, Poul Anderson, Tolkien, etc drew upon what they knew: European myths and history, classical epics and 19th century swashbucklers. And further, writing in the 20s-50s what access would they have had to broader material?


Later authors, the Terry Brooks of the world, then just repeated those authors original works and that’s how we get todays very narrow tropes of fantasy.


Earthsea, Imaro, Latro, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - all outside the traditional medieval sword and sorcery milieu and all good.
