The Fantasy Role-Playing Game: A New Performing Art
- Daniel Mackay
The Fantasy Role-playing Game: A New Performing Art is one of the foundational works in role-playing game studies. Using Erving Goffman's frame analysis to explain the relationship between game play and real life, Mackay argues in favor of viewing fantasy role-playing as an emerging art form. While Mackay's focus tends toward the general, he does mention LARP in places throughout the book.
