Tough Traveling


Each Thursday, our copy of ‘The Tough Guide to Fantasyland’ in hand, we shall tour the mystical countryside looking for adventure and fun (and tropes) from all over fantasy.

A feature/meme started here at Fantasy Review Barn, for 83 weeks bloggers joined me every Thursday to discuss their favorite examples or very specific tropes.  Enthusiasm waned and late in 2015 the last Tough Traveling post was set.  Yet nothing I did on this site every compared.  Over 50 blogs participated at one point or another.  Many bloggers told me they had some of their biggest stats come when their Tough Travel entries got reblogged, retweeted, or put up on various forums.  I have been contacted many times with people asking me to restart it but time considerations have kept it from happening…. until now.

Details are coming soon but Tough Travels is coming back.  It will be in a different form and I am only nominally involved.  But be ready my friends, I will keep you updated.

(Like everything else on this site this page and the posts contained are a mess.  I am cleaning them one at a time, AND getting the old link ups re attached.  Expect it to keep getting better over time)
