In Rhetorics of Fantasy, Farah Mendlesohn proposes four categories of the fantastic. In one of these, Portal Quest fantasies, she observes, “the fantastic is on the other side and does not leak. Although individuals may cross both ways, the magic does not”. This paper considers some of the Portal Quest fantasies and discusses how the magic does indeed leak through into the "real world".
