message 2: by Abram (new)

Abram Taylor Um, why is Catcher in the Rye on this list? I haven't read it, but I don't believe it has fantastical or improbable elements.
Therefore, it isn't speculative fiction.
Is the creator of the list aware of what 'speculative' means, especially in a literary context?


message 3: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Also: Shogun, Blood Meridian, and No Country For Old Men are not spec fic.
