- — Michael R. Underwood (@MikeRUnderwood)Wed, Mar 04 2015 00:54:04SHIELD AND CROCUS is #TotallyNotFantasy - it's an indictment of post-9/11 government overreach and a literalization of the Body Politic.

- — Laura Anne Gilman (@LAGilman)Wed, Mar 04 2015 00:52:34My books aren't fantasy. They're careful examinations of love, loyalty & obligation via the metaphor of monsters. #TotallyNotFantasy

- — E. Catherine Tobler (@ECthetwit)Wed, Mar 04 2015 01:25:45My novels are #totallynotfantasy, the airships symbolize the unbearable lightness of being, how we may slip away any second.
- — J. B. Whelan (@jbwhelan)Wed, Mar 04 2015 01:34:36My writing is #TotallyNotFantasy--if you don't count the demon wolves. Though considering they don't like that, you might want to.
- — E. Catherine Tobler (@ECthetwit)Wed, Mar 04 2015 01:40:50My novels are #TotallyNotFantasy because fairies DO EXIST, you just haven't opened yourself up properly to experience them.
- — Anne Leonard (@anneleonardauth)Wed, Mar 04 2015 01:43:10MOTH AND SPARK is #TotallyNotFantasy because I am a woman with an MFA and thus by definition can't write fantasy. Anyway, dragons are real.
- — Martha Wells (@marthawells1)Wed, Mar 04 2015 01:44:34In my writing the shapeshifting lizard people are #TotallyNotFantasy - they're metaphors for like, sex and issues and important stuff.

- — Sarah Rayne Trick (@saraynet)Wed, Mar 04 2015 01:51:22My book is #totallynotfantasy b/c it's about a middle-aged writer and is a meditation on grief, love, and parenthood. The magic is metaphor.

Fantasy Authors explain how their works are totally not fantasy. Caution: contains sarcasm. Lots.
