Knight battling a dragon

The knight Dobrynya Nikitich battles the dragon Zmey Gorynych
in a scene from Russian epic mythology

Epic fantasy is pretty easy to define: it's a great, grand adventure, or series of adventures, set in a fantasy universe. The grandmaster of epic fantasy will always be J. R. R. Tolkien, but others have tried their hand at this very difficult kind of writing. Most have failed (IMO). A few have succeeded.
