Genres [unfinished]

For the moment, the idea is for C.W. Hewett's The Librarian's Revenge to introduce different genres of litterature and other kinds of texts using your writing. It seems everyone agrees on this so now we must decide on how to that. Below I have listed the "genres" I think could be relevant and an idea for the sequence in which they could appear.

Some of you have stories you want to include in The Librarian's Revenge and they will probably fit more or less in one or two of the following genres. Please "choose" what genre/s you are interested in exploring and write it in a comment to this post.

Fairy Tales/Children's books Books like Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll are advanced fairy tales rather than fantasy.

Young Fantasy The Narnia Chronicles by C.S. Lewis, Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling are aimed at a younger audience and take place in world that is parallel to the 'real'world. Terry Pratchett is also aiming at the slightly younger readers but is appreciated by adults as well.

"Pure"Fantasy J.R.R.Tolkien, Ursul K. LeGuin and others have written huge epics which are set in entirely fictional worlds.

Science fiction From the very gadget and space ship

Dystopic novels Technically almost Science Fiction, 1984 by George Orwell, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 are all interesting and sharp

Mystery/Crime

Horror fiction Edgar Allan Darren Shan
