Because my Saturday Submission post brought up some cool discussions about genres, and horror, and definitions, thought I’d post some links I found that might be useful when it comes to figuring out the genres (specially horror, but it’s a good look at all of them).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horror_fiction

Any other genre resources out there that you guys find especially helpful? I’m thinking it might be a good idea to make a list!

Kiss kiss bang bang, s.

“Unlike FANTASY, SUPERNATURAL FICTION and SCIENCE FICTION — terms which describe generic structure — horror is a term which describes an affect. A horror story makes its readers feel horror.” ~From the The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (John Clute and John Grant):
