Is It Just Me?

I was flipping through a book of photographs called The Faces of Fantasy at one of the local used bookstores this morning, and one thing struck me. The title is entirely deceptive. Most of the people photographed in the volume are old white people. Surely the fantasy genre isn’t this monolithic?

Addendum: To clarify, the people who weren’t old and white were young and white. Relatively speaking anyway–if you consider someone like Neil Gaiman young. Gaiman is old enough to have kids around my age.
