Science Fiction Fantasy
There’s a bit of debate over what genre The Heroes Fall books should be put under. Are they Sci-Fi or Fantasy?
Fantasy is a genre that uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, and/or setting.
The Heroes Fall definitely has a supernatural phenomena based plot, so it could be put into fantasy.
Jeff Prucher. 2006. Science fiction is “a genre (of literature, film, etc.) in which the setting differs from our own world (e.g. by the invention of new technology, through contact with aliens, by having a different history, etc.), and in which the difference is based on extrapolations made from one or more changes or suppositions; hence, such a genre in which the difference is explained (explicitly or implicitly) in scientific or rational, as opposed to supernatural, terms
Yes, difficult to explain indeed. Based on the above explanations of the genres, The Heroes Fall fits more into the Fantasy genre than Science Fiction, but so Science Fiction readers know they could potentially enjoy the work too, let’s just say it’s a combination of both!
