    I agree. Genre fixes the expectation, and only the most open minded reader will enjoy working the ‘edges.’

    One issue with genres is they tend to implode into the least common denominator, waiting for someone like a Stanislav Lem or Ursala LeGuin to push them back to their original dimensions. Until then, the more open reader has to be content with 30 year old back lists to supplement the fun stuff being published right now.
