Ward, Thomas B.
American Psychologist, v56 n4 p350-54 Apr 2001
Explores the use of conceptual combination in Stephen Donaldson's development of ideas for his fantasy books. Uses Donaldson's own account to illustrate the general principles of a creative cognition approach to understanding creativity and the role of the process of conceptual combination. Assesses links between Donaldson's and others' anecdotal accounts of creativity and laboratory investigations. Argues for a convergence approach. (SM)
