I read an interesting take on Fantasy vs. Sci-Fi the other day. I always just thought of Fantasy as things that couldn’t happen as explained by science, and science fiction as things that could be, even if we don’t have that technology currently.
It got me to thinking about how difficult it is to pin down genre. Years ago, books used to be expected to have one genre only, ie. romance, fantasy, or mystery. These days, multi-genre or cross-genre fiction is much more common. I’ve already been interested in entering contests or calls for submissions with a genre listing that I have to look up.
In any case, here’s the original article I read. Take a look; it’s interesting stuff.
