I guess "alternate-historical fiction" falls under "sci-fi/fantasy." I just re-read this masterpiece after a lapse of 6 years or so, and find it is even better than I remembered! An alternate history in which England languishes under Spanish rule after the victory of the Spanish Armada, and William Shakespeare as a main character - with his voice convincingly represented - makes this a wonderful bit of fiction. I got it from my local library in paperback - I wish I had not given away my hardcover copy, 6 years ago!
