← Fantasy's Spell on Pop Culture: When Will It Wear Off?

I've read the article, and still don't see what his point is. Fantasy will, sooner or later, be less popular. So? That's obvious.

A couple decades ago, we had a western craze. Before that, a ganster craze. We've had alien crazes, vampire crazes - popular culture follows trends, and will continue to do so. My guess is that we're heading towards a steampunk craze, but I'm probably wrong.
