That's what I keep saying. If you take any two genres, or even multiple
genres, you can find books that straddle the line, but if there is any
meaning to the word genre at all then there must be differences between
them and science fiction and fantasy are the two most unrelated genres
of all. I clearly remember that we were told that when the new category
structure would be implemented science fiction and fantasy would be
split. Yet, the new category structure has now been implemented and
science fiction and fantasy are still lumped together. I really hate to
categorize a science fiction book as fantasy, but if I am to categorize
it as science fiction I have to. That grates on my nerves, to say the least.

I just sent up a book for approval, after proofing. I happened to notice the new categories. We still have Science Fiction and Fantasy as one category. they aren't! Granted, there are some books that straddle the line between the two, but to put Isaac Asimov in the same bin with J.R.R. Tolkien is a bit much. Any way to make a separation between these two?
