Question by Abet P: Is there a lady in NYC writing Best Mystery Science Fiction Genre Busting Psychological Books?
Is there a lady in NYC writing Best Mystery Science Fiction Genre Busting Psychological Books? From what I can see she is writing several Science Fiction novels, the first entitled THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD which tells of “MEND” (Musical Encode Decode) and is a real time invention created and fought over by the characters in the fictional narrative form. The narrative is a series of five books that begins with THE SKELETON SCORE. Book one, clues us in to the historical road map of the ancient Barrington dynasty and their centuries old migration into modern times. That’s all I know, Does anyone else know of her or her books?

Best answer:

Answer by June L
Yes, it’s this lady Mardi Ellen Hill, whose fictional story, a series of books, entitled THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD chronicles the exploits of a well-known dynasty as it progresses across centuries and continents, brings us to our 21st century era, when themes of power and greed collide with the virtual world. The privilege of insular power the family once enjoyed is dismantled from inside and outside the familial realm. Dynasty secrets that have been dormant for centuries suddenly erupt on a global playing field. Lily Barrington, protagonist and wife of the family inventor stumbles upon the source of the dynasty’s power and ancestry. Neat work.

Question by Ricardo H: what kind of genre is this story? does it sound interesting? Do you think it’s short story or novel material?
A man, heartbroken years ago, decides to fulfill his career goals and succeeds but with an inexplicable emptiness in his heart. One day, in his horribly simple life, he wakes up and finds out that there is no one in his neighborhood. On the way to work, he finds out that the entire city has been mysteriously abandoned – everything left behind intact -. He enjoys the abandoning for a while, but with no one to share with, it is pointless. He decides to visit his ex wife and figure out the reason as to why she had left him. He has to travel for long distances alone and realizes the whole country – maybe world – is abandoned…but not entirely, on his journey he encounters an old man that is going to the same city he is, and a child that wants to go back to where he’s from. He finally reaches his destination after several “human” conflicts with the old man and child and figures both mysteries: why there is no one, and why she (wife) left him.

Actually, I think that depends on the “Why she left him” and “Why he is alone in the world” questions. What was the cause If it was supernatural or alien influenced, the sci-fi. I`d probably say sci-fi anyway considering that only 3 ppl being in the world seems pretty fictatious. ^_~

Question by bookworm14: What is the difference between magic realism and fantasy genre in terms of movies/novels?
I already know that magic realism is presenting a world of both reality and fantasy. But I`m not quite sure what is the difference between fantasy genre and magic realism genre??? Thanks for the help.

Best answer:

Answer by Harry
Magic realism, or magical realism, is an artistic genre in which magical elements or illogical scenarios appear in an otherwise realistic or even “normal” setting. It has been widely used in relation to literature, art, and film.
Fantasy is a genre that uses magic and other supernatural forms as a primary element of plot, theme, and/or setting. Fantasy is generally distinguished from science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of technological and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three (collectively known as speculative fiction).
Prominent English-language fantasy writers have stated that “magic realism” is only another name for fantasy fiction. Gene Wolfe said, “Magic realism is fantasy written by people who speak Spanish,”, and Terry Pratchett said magic realism “is like a polite way of saying you write fantasy”.
Others say that in fantasy, the writer creates new worlds, perhaps new planets. By contrast, writers, who use magical realism, don’t create new worlds, but suggest the magical in our world.

Answer by S.A.B Voice Actress in Training!
I’m pretty sure it’s in Germany…It can be Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Tragedy, and lots more. The setting is confusing but based on the buildings, and the movie, it’s Germany, but with deserts…
