Sci-fi Mysteries

Two great genres combined

I love “genre fiction”. Specifically, I love mystery, romance, fantasy, and sci-fi. I would estimate that about 98% of my reading in the past year has been in one of those genres, so it’s safe to say that I really love genre fiction. So much so that sometimes I like to add a little more genre to my genre fiction - I’m talking about sci-fi mysteries. That’s right, there’s nothing better than putting two of my favorite genres together in one delicious package.
