If you find fantasy lover too suggestive and fantasy-fiction lover too unwieldy, then perhaps the problem is with the lover part, not the fantasy part.
My favorite is fantasy buff, which doesn’t seem too unwieldy.
A fantasy fan is easy too, and then there’s always fantasy devotee and fantasy aficionado. Whether fantasy addict or fantasy junkie are also too connotative of other matters, I leave to you.
While to many people it has negative connotations, "nerd" could serve your purposes admirably. As could "fan" or "enthusiast".
