Discussion: Mixing Genres

mixing genres

I’m never happy unless I’m moving.

People who know me will attest to this. I am always doing at least three things at once. And yes, before you say it, I know it will drive me into an early grave. Where I will still be multitasking.

But I’m the same with my writing. Not only do I almost always have at least three projects going, but I like to mix multiple genres in each one – often sci fi and fantasy together.

Which brings me to my questions: Do you stick with one genre, or do you like to go back and forth between several? Do you ever mix them? What are some of your favorite blends?

  1. Great question. I don’t like to be boxed in. A story is a story, and it knows no genre or category. It simply is. And it needs to be told. That said, many people like their scifi hard and their fantasy magical, but some authors have been successful at mixing them (to one degree or another). Card and Eddings come to mind.

    I do have an upcoming book project that will mix fantasy and scifi. Editors won’t know what to do with it…LOL.
