You took my idea of a "niche" market a bit further than I originally thought of! :D The thing is, that over the years I got spoiled by the crafts and arts of the previous generations, and grew older (DUH). Brace yourself, as I'm about to sound pretentious, even though I don't want to. I find it very difficult to find a story, where I can lost myself these days. I want to read something, that closely resembles my way of thinking. Believe it or not, that is partially why I scribble. I want to explore more and see where the boundaries of fiction can go, or at least how far I can push it. I might be just way too picky, who knows. To put it into perspective: I feel like a horror fanatic, who saw everything and very hard to please.
Currently yes, I solely write science fiction and fantasy. Although I'm not entirely sure that I precisely contain myself within these lines, as I tend to wander between genres. Like my latest creation, where it was an action/adventure, with horror and adult elements. I wouldn't call it a true representation of any of those genres, rather then observations. It's probably just an urban fiction, or whatever they called it these days.
I'm curious to know what do you mean by realistic? I was about to dwell into it, but I want to hear more from you, first! :) I mean, what aspects of a story makes it realistic for you, or what do you deem to be realistic? (apart from the obvious: tragedy, romance, western, and so forth, or the even more obvious non-fictions: cookbooks, history and biography books. etc.)
Well, until then, keep up the good work!
