So, one of the single most useful internet tools I’ve seen at Book Expo America this week is Book Country’s Genre Map: an at-a-glance overview of genre fiction’s many sub-genres. As genre writing becomes increasingly mainstream (and perhaps IS now the mainstream), expect to hear about sub-genres cyberpunk, weird fiction, regency romance, and on and on. For example, do you know the difference beween Hard Sci-Fi and Soft Sci-Fi? I sure didn’t.
