message 1: by mlady_rebecca (new)

mlady_rebecca Kim Harrison isn't sf or horror. It's some variation of fantasy - urban fantasy, paranormal fantasy, or dark fantasy.

Looks like too much self advertising in this list anyway.


message 3: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten Agreed -- I was just about to comment the same thing about Kim Harrison. I don't want to remove her books, though, because the line between Sci-Fi and Fantasy is a bit ambiguous and one may be able to argue that her books are, in fact, Sci-Fi. I would say that her books are light horror, though.
