Description The paper studies the problem of dioecy in the Czech fantastic literature. There are two spheres of fantastic literature – one is the popular one, connected with fandom, publishing houses, and specialized bookshops, the second can be classified as “high literature” and is usually mimetic, therefore the reader may not expect any fantastic elements in it. However, there are fantastic elements – and very often. One sphere usually does not accept the second one, though, as shown on examples of short stories by Jan Dobiáš and a novella by René Vaněk. The extratextual features are only one way to look at fantastic literature. Another possibility is to study the use of the fantastic element. And as shown here, the intratextual analysis divides fantastic literature on a completely different level than the extratextual analysis.
