Re: Fantasy, SF or Horror?
SF for me, then weird tale horror. I think I'd read a lot more fantasy if it didn't have magic in it. I read one recently and- while i loved the imagined world, its cultures and characters- the wizardly stuff seemed a drag.
I get the feeling that magic gets tacked onto a lot of fantasy worlds out of some knee jerk instinct- 'well, its fantasy, it can't possibly not have magic!'
Of course I could be stereotyping. I haven't read all that much.
