Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer Richard Wood:
Speculative fiction is an umbrella term for a number of genres that speculate on what could be in our world and beyond. We cover four of these at QSF – SF, Fantasy, Paranormal, and Horror.
My own favorites are Sci Fi and Fantasy – I’ve always loved the generally optimistic nature of these two genres, especially sci fi, when it supposes that we will live in a wider and fairer world some day than we do today.
Of the four general categories of stories this group covers, SF, Fantasy, Paranormal, and Horror; which is your favorite and why?
