High vs. Low Fantasy
- "High" is more "epic," either:
- set entirely in an imaginary world (Zelda, LOTR)
- parallel world (Alice in Wonderland, Oz, Narnia)
- world-within-a-world (Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Spiderwick Chronicles), more "epic"
- "Low" is the unreal happening in the real world
- The Green Mile
- The Indian in the Cupboard
- The Borrowers
- I Dream of Jeanie
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- These paths can be crossed: Neverending Story, Narnia
