    Often, writers of fantasy fiction devote a series of books to the same world or characters. Some of the most famous examples of fantasy fiction are The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, His Dark Materials (which begins with The Golden Compass), and The Wizard of Earthsea collections. Note that the Harry Potter series also qualifies as fantasy fiction, even though the books take.   A few smatterings of fact in a work of fiction does not make it true, while a few fabrications in a nonfiction work can force that story to lose all credibility. An example is when James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces, was kicked out of Oprah’s Book Club in when it came to light that he had fabricated most of his memoir.
