Genre Confusion

Hi everyone! Today I’m guest posting over at Horror Writer Charles O’Keefe’s blog.

I have a great big genre pet peeve and it sets my teeth on edge the same way it does when somebody says irregardless (THAT’S NOT A WORD!!!!!). It’s when you’re talking about something like, say, The Lord of the Rings, and somebody says “Oh, I don’t like Sci-Fi.” My pet peeve is not that they don’t like sci-fi, although if you don’t, what the hell is wrong with you? (I’m just kidding, I swear!) It’s that The Lord of the Rings is NOT Sci-Fi! It’s fantasy! Do you see any frickin’ robots anywhere? Was Gollum an alien? No! So learn your genres!
