This may not be of help but I remember reading two things over the years. One, that sf is a sub-genre of fantasy (not the other way around) so technically all sf may be considered a type of fantasy, and two, all fiction is fantasy (which might be true in the extreme but not sure how practical it is). Wish I could remember where I read this. I'm sure a person's personal definition of fantasy is essential in all this.
