    If there's one writer I hope defines fantasy in the coming decades, it's Daniel Polansky. 'Low Town' was a gripping debut novel that mixed fantasy and noir into a awesome combination. I love epic fantasy, but novels like 'Low Town' show that grittier, more intimate stories can be just as compelling, even more so in many cases (as Polansky so masterfully does). I can't wait for the sequel!
