|Title:||Consuming spaces: Clive Barker, William Gibson and the cultural poetics of postmodern fantasy||Authors:||Goh, R.B.H.||Issue Date:||2000||Citation:||Goh, R.B.H. (2000). Consuming spaces: Clive Barker, William Gibson and the cultural poetics of postmodern fantasy. Social Semiotics 10 (1) : 21-39. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1080/103503300114531||Abstract:||A significant trend emerges in contemporary fantasy-what might be called 'heterocosmic fantasy', as opposed to an older but still vital tradition of 'epic' high fantasy. The narrative forms of heterocosmic fantasy accord with the defining characteristics of contemporary media (particularly the Internet and contemporary television programming, and the practice of 'surfing' both of these), but this form of fantasy also rehearses certain ideological modes of behaviour. In particular, it rehearses in textual form the illusory alterity, the management of potential social unrest, and the frenetic consumption of 'late capitalist' society. © 2000 Taylor & Francis Ltd.||Source Title:||Social Semiotics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/129382||ISSN:||10350330||DOI:||10.1080/103503300114531|
