I had for a bit thought about blogging about quiet, but the day has been long with work and a bad eye (doctor’s appointment tomorrow), so I will take the suggestion of a quiz from the main A-Z blog.
For my ‘quiz,’ I’ll do some very unscientific marketing research. Feel free to answer these questions in the comments or on your own blog (although please comment with a link to your entry).
First, when you read fiction, do you read from the genres of westerns, action, fantasy, or science-fiction and, if so, which? If not, what are your major genres?
Second, if you read fantasy, what sort is your primary sub-genre? I’m talking here of things like epic fantasy, magical realism, urban fantasy, swords-and-sorcery, and so on.
Third, if you read science-fiction, what is your favorite sub-genre?
Fourth, what is your favorite length of fiction? Do you like short fiction ( < 17,500 words), novellas ( 17,500-40,000 words), pulp-era through the 70s novels (40,000-70,000 words), modern-era novels (70,000-140,000 words), or long novels (140,000 words plus). The novel categories are rough and my own formulation.
