Mystery for me too.

I See lots of fantasy fans here like historic fiction, wonder how much crossover we get? Does anyone not like historical fiction if a fan of fantasy?

According to some,* heroic deaths are admirable things

* Generally those who don't have to do it.Politicians and writers spring to mind

 :D I quite like historical fiction. Maybe not so much now, but some years ago I felt that I knew English history much better than I knew Portuguese one, hehe - middle ages period, at least.
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

Yeah, historical fiction: Saxon Tales, Skystone series, etc.

Poetry and nonfiction. The kind of poetry I like most, reads like fantasy, and nonfiction's good for learning things.

YA. Mostly YA fantasy though, so I ended up back at the same stuff again.  ;D

Scifi and Fantastic for me.

And once in a while (ok make it one or two times a year), a mystery or classical author, just for general knowledge.
