Terrestrial SF & Fantasy

SF and Fantasy set primarily on planet earth. For example, a book like "The stars my destination" hops around the solar system but mostly takes place on planet earth so would be eligible. A book like "The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe" however, is set briefly on earth but mostly takes place in Narnia so would not be eligible.

Bettie please tell me how jekyll and hyde fits in here - have I missed looking at the criteria in some way? ( bear in mind it is past my bedtime and I am a mental mush)

:O)


message 2: by John (last edited Jul 10, 2009 02:25PM) (new)

John Burns So you're saying jekyll and hyde is neither fantasy nor SF? I'm pretty sure its set on earth...
In fact that reminds me, i forgot to add dracula...
Hell, i'm gonna add Gullivers travels too.
Ooh, and the odyssey.

oh... my... god. Not to be an arse or anything but you do realise that you can add books to this list yourself using the "find/add books" search box in the top right hand corner?

It's awe-inspiring, the number of lists that have comments from people who don't know how to use the lists complaining that they don't contain any of their favourite books.


message 7: by Bettie (new)

Bettie I hope you are not a nurse, Killthepopular, as your bedside manner stinks!

Greyweather and Killthepopular - you are both adorable, more so because you are the grumpy gits that sit in the balcony in the muppets and make me laugh.
