Genres

What is it about genre fiction that pulls in so many readers? I have had a huge love of fantasy for years. I'm also a fan of sci-fi, though it is my second love. I have my own reasons for loving fantasy. I love the new and beautiful worlds where anything can happen. All the rules are rewritten in this world. I can escape to a place where I love the main character because he is all the things that I am not or love understands my own point of view better than most of my friends can. Fantasy is a place were I can escape for an hour or two out the day, and all it takes for me to find it again is to open the book or fire up my kindle app.

But, one thing I want to mention is, there are lots of genres and sub-genres. There is epic fantasy, sword and sorcery, urban fantasy, dark fantasy, and many more, and that is just in the fantasy genre. So, what is it about genre that draws us in. Leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite genre is and why. I'm curious as to what types of stories people read and why. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I'll be here reading and writing away!

Wogan Nance, more commonly referred to as Boot Chuck by his squad, looked out over the sprawling camp of the army. Tents were lined up orderly in rows for as far as the eye could see. Soldiers milled around cook fires, sharpened swords, and fletched arrows, mostly staying close to their own squad's compound of tents and supplies. He wondered how many soldiers were like himself, hiding their true nature to keep from being used up in short order. He wondered how many secret mages, or at least those with the ability to become mages lurked in midst of the throng of these men and women.

Mages were a hot commodity in the Imperial Army as it swept across the continent claiming new lands for its own. Magic turned the tide in battle for whichever side had the most numerous mages. While ability helped greatly, a large number of fledgling mages could overcome a seasoned magical user in due time, at the cos…
