Genres 101: The Recap

Filed in Genres 101 , The Quirky Lover Posted on October 26, 2011 @ 3:39 pm 4 comments

We’ve had many great discussions in our virtual classroom here over the past little while, so I thought it was time to recap all of our topics before the final exam….okay, just kidding, there’s no test! But, in case you missed any, here’s what we’ve talked about to date:

Dystopian and Apocalyptic Fiction
Science Fiction
Occupational Fiction
Historical Fiction
Erotic Fiction
Women’s Fiction
Religious Fiction
Weird Names for Genres
Western Fiction
Philosophical Fiction
Literary Fiction
Adventure Novels

Wow! We really have covered lots of ground. Of course, within each link, there are sub-genres too. With so many more books being published, in whatever form (hard copy or ebook), there are many more crossovers happening to. Is this a complete list of genres? Considering the crossover idea, probably not. What I ask today is: have we missed anything really big, that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these categories? Do you, our lovely readers, have any types of books that you’d like to see talked about? If not, then all that’s left is our certificate of completion 😉

    I think zombies should get their own genre so zombie books are easier to find. Zombiepunk or Urban Zombies or something like that 😉

    @Blodeuedd – It was fun, with a link to lots of other strange ones.

    @Sullivan McPig – Yes! Zombies and Robots, lol. Thanks 🙂

    Thank you Jackie it was most informative, and so much fun 🙂

    Well I'd like to see more clearly about the different time periods in historical fiction (what does Edwardian, Regency, etc. exactly stand for), but I guess I'll have to look that up myself 🙂

    Thank you! 🙂
