A Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin

George R.R. Martin and Adventure Fantasy

Similar in many respects to high fantasy, the adventure version of fantasy literature has a distinctly different core philosophy. While high fantasy tends to elevate its story to noble Crusade, the adventure fantasy embraces the notion of adventure for its own sake. The episodes in adventure fantasy are shaped mostly by the internal desires of their protagonists, rather than epic struggles between Good and Evil.
