Inspired by minstrel's comment in Magical or Not? in Setting Development: http://www.writingforums.org/threads/magical-or-not.127256/ I've always considered myself to be a fantasy buff, but I don't think I've ever read a fantasy book that didn't have any magical elements in it. Even A Song of Ice and Fire has some magical elements to it. Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy was probably the most unique magical system I've ever read, but it was still considered magic. I'm intrigued, even to the point of making my next novel magic free (I've struggled with magic in the past). Anyone know of any fantasy books that have no magic in them?
