Mike Duran talks about Speculative Fiction. Since I'm thinking about entering the Genesis Contest under this category, the article piqued my interest.
Defining this genre is not easy. As one commenter noted, the term is more of an umbrella term with sub-genres like Christian Supernatural fiction, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy underneath. Most publishers shy away from the category, but there's an untapped demand from readers.
I'm interested to see what you think of the article and the genre. Since my book is near-future, I thought I might fit here.
Have a blessed weekend!
