About Our Tags:

Some of our categories need work: mystery and scifi in particular. When is a mystery a "thriller" or a "legal thriller" or "crime" or "espionage"? Similarly, there's that troublesome difference between scifi and fantasy. Robert Sawyer has a really good definition on his blog:

"Science fiction deals with things that might possibly happen (or, in the case of the subgenre of science fiction known as alternate history, things that possibly could have happened); fantasy deals with things that never could happen. There is always a path from our here-and-now to the milieu of a science-fiction story: usually that path simply involves time passing and plausible advances in science and changes in society taking place during that time. There is never a path from our here-and-now to the milieu of a fantasy story: no matter how much you might want to get to the fantasy world, you can't, because magic and supernatural powers do not work in our universe -- you can't get there from here. Succinctly: there's discontinuity between our reality and fantasy; there's continuity between our reality and science fiction."

And then there's the pesky problem of books about religion. (In one of my favorite job interviews for a job I didn't get, at the library of a large religious institution in Washington, D.C., I said (right before being booted out the door), "But you've got the Bibles filed under non-fiction!!!")

As soon as I figure out what's reality and what isn't, I'll fix our tags....
