The Epic Tradition in Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Mahon, Robert Lee
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v14 n1 p47-51 Feb 1987
Claims that some of the finest works of contemporary science fiction and fantasy borrow heavily from the epic tradition. Proposes that science fiction and fantasy can avoid the disbelief problem by the simple expedient of removing the "here and now," and, thereby, the realistic diminishment of causes and heroes. (JD)
