Over the last several weeks, we've had the opportunity to look at ten of the main genres in fiction: Adventure, Contemporary, Fantasy, Historical, Horror, Humor, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, and Suspense/Thriller. Each has their advantages. Each has their disadvantages. All of them have something to contribute.
Of course, these aren’t the only genres out there. Many genres can be mixed and
matched: a romance and a suspense can be combined for romantic suspense. Genres
can also be graded according to ages or reading levels. Or they can be divided
by how content is handled into Christian fiction, inspirational fiction, and
secular fiction. As result, you can have a nearly endless variety.
So go, explore. Stretch your perspectives and your
boundaries, using fiction to help discover who God created us to be.
