Might another way of putting the contrast be to say that believing is a kind of imagining? This makes some good sense if we think of imagining as a perhaps more generic way of representing things to ourselves, whereas belief requires that in addition to representing we also have some kind of commitment to the truth, accuracy, veridicality or what have you of the representation. Just a thought. Currie and Ravenscroft argue something like this in Recreative Minds -- though their aim is not to argue anything in particular about the relation of fiction to fact.
