Subgenre Saturday: New Weird
And now for something completely different. Well, maybe not
completely, but we’re looking at a subgenre that sits in my wheelhouse, but it
kind of clings to ceiling and drips stuff down on everybody else’s head. See,
starting in the late 1800s and bleeding ...

Subgenre Saturday: Low Fantasy
So, most everyone knows what high fantasy is, I would
assume. Tolkien and Dragonlance and Shannara and The Wheel of Time. Huge world
that isn’t earth, lots of magic everywhere, and normally massively important
consequences (though not always). I don’t even ...

Subgenre Saturday: Wuxia
Well, today
we’re going for something a little bit less familiar to a lot of my readers…and
possibly something I’ve talked about before, but not necessarily in depth like
this. Wuxia fiction. It’s at once a very specific description and also an
incredibly b...

Subgenre Saturday: Magical Realism
The first installment of Subgenre Saturdays was all about
bizarro fiction which, as the name suggests, is bizarre. But it's bizarre in a
very in-depth way. The plot, the characters, the writing style, even the
formatting of the books can sometimes be very s...

Subgenre Saturday: Gaslamp Fantasy
So, we were talking about steampunk last week, and I
mentioned gaslamp fantasy in passing, but that's all. I figured now is as good
a time as any to go ahead and cover it. So here we are. Steampunk and gaslamp
fantasy are intensely tied together, and could ...

Subgenre Saturday: Bizarro Fiction
People know what they like, for the most part. It hardly
needs stating, it's such a well-accepted fact. But what people don't always
have are the words for what they like, the names that they can actually use to
communicate it. That's not exactly a problem ...

Subgenre Saturday: Sword and Sorcery
So last week, when I was talking low fantasy, I made
lots of promises that I would go through and clarify the differences between
low fantasy and sword and sorcery. Well, today is the day. Now, the main confusion comes from the fact that, yes, sword
and sor...

I Will Walk with You
This is something that really touched me, and something that I really think needs saying, in light of everything happening in the SF/F community at current. At Worldcon, and at any other con, any other situation, if you see me and you don't feel comfortable...

Subgenre Saturday: Steampunk
So last week , we talked about bizarro fiction, the new kid
on the block, kind of weird. You're pretty sure he worships some kind of god he
made up, but you don't ever want to call him on it just in case he snaps. This week, we're going mainstream… or as ma...
