I am discovering that my newest story idea may in fact be a mild flavor of portal fantasy. I'm finding a lot of no-more-portal-fantasy-ffs verbiage across the net. I know, I know. "You can write whatever you want if you write it well." Blah, blah, blah - blah, blah - blahblahblahblah. For those who love or hate or have an opinion on portal fantasy, in your opinion, what makes a good one, a mediocre one, one that makes you ask for your money back? Why all the hate for portal? Clive Barker made portal his thing and his shit is awesome! Why is this a thing people have an opinion on?
