For Readers: When is it Romance, and When is it Speculative Fiction?


Here at QSF, we are inclusive of both works that are romancey but have a sci fi, fantasy, paranormal or horror backdrop, and works that are sci fi, fantasy, paranormal or horror, but include an LGBTIQA character or relationship.

And of course, there’s a big fuzzy middle, too.

So we thought we’d ask our readers – where do you draw the line between speculative fiction and romance? And what mix do you prefer and why?

Writers: This is a reader chat – you are welcome to join it, but please do not reference your own works directly. Thanks!
