Fantasy, definitely. I like the way the imagaination has no bounds when you write it, 'cause, like, ANYTHING can happen. For instance, J.D. could find a magical sword that has a mind of its own and ends up killing him as a result. And for those of you who have seen my posts about J.D., then you'd know that I would absolutely LOVE THIS.
I also enjoy writing a bit of romance here and there. A story can't progress without some kind of romance, if you ask me.
Great topic, by the way, Dreamer4ever!

Scifi-Fantasy. I enjoy exploring the bounds of what can be explained by science.
I believe it was Arthur Clarke that said: "Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from Magic." Simply put, if we were to go back to the stone age with a Zippo, they would have called us a god. Or maybe just "ug ugh!" but I'm sure they meant it as a compliment.

I love to write science fiction. But with elements of humor, romance and horror to flesh it out and make an interesting story.
I read in a competitor's Discussion Forum that Horror is big right now, with the economy in trouble. The Commentor sounded like a publisher or book seller, and he said that when times are flush and everyone's happy, people lean toward Fantasy.
So when things are scarey and uncertain, like now, readers tend to reach for Horror. I'm not sure why. Misery loves company? Fun to read about characters in even more trouble than you are?

Have you read "The Misenchanted Sword" by Lawrence Watt-Evans? It's slightly similar.
My own reading preference is light sf and f, like "Podkayne of Mars" and "Practical Demonkeeping."
