"The fantastic genre ... involves a confrontation between two worlds whose basic physical norms are mutually incompatible. A miracle is "Another world's intrusion into this one," according to a character in Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49, and it is precisely the miraculous in this sense of the term that constitutes the ontological structure of the fantastic genre."
— Brian McHale, Postmodernist Fiction (info)
