1 Quotation from Genevieve Valentine

grimdark n. 2015 G. Valentine For A Taste Of Grimdark in 25 Jan. Grimdark…[has] become shorthand for a subgenre of fantasy fiction that claims to trade on the psychology of those sword-toting heroes, and the dark realism behind all those kingdom politics. But there are arguments over who fits the definition…and whether the nickname is a useful genre marker or just a needle. Some…have embraced the term (his Twitter handle is @lordgrimdark). Others see it as a dismissive term for fantasy that’s dismantling tropes, a stamp unfairly applied.
