I like some fantasy, LotR included. I no longer have the patience though to read the 1,000 page paperbacks with countless subplots, author-created pseudo-languages, and the quests that take 15 or 20 books to resolve. My preference nowadays is for urban fantasy from authors like A. Lee Martinez[^], N. K. Jemisin[^], and Jim Butcher[^].
