Do you enjoy speculative fiction (SF, fantasy, horror)?
Do you enjoy speculative fiction (SF, fantasy, horror)? If so, do you cross genres? Only SF, only Fantasy, only Horror, or 2 of the above, or all 3?
I love a good story. It doesn't matter what genre. As long as it is told in constant with its genre, I find it interesting. And yes, I do cross genres.
I read anything that catches my eye and holds it regardless of what genre it is, though I will admit to being partial to fantasy. Fantasy is also the only genre that what I write currently fits into. Still, a good book is one who speaks to me on a personal level, and that can come from any book category.
I enjoy reading all three, although I tend to read more sci-fi and fantasy than horror fiction. I like it when an author can draw you into a different world. I also like to read works of science fiction, such as the works of HG Wells,to see how one's view of the future is shaped by the present.

What do you think about clichés in fantasy fiction?Should they be avoided? Do they actually enrich the work and solidify its place in the genre? A little of both?
