Hi, I did a quick search on genre, and a couple of things came up. Mixing genres and one on a realistic fantasy paradox, which din't reall help me. I would class myself as dark, horror and gothic orientated. An idea came to me the other day, and I just started writing a short story. I've nearly finished it, but I can't identify its genre in order to see which publications I could submit it to. There's no supernatural, vampire or monster theme. So I had a look at what something like 'The long walk' would have been classified as by Stephen King. That comes up as sci-fi and fantasy, and general fiction. This is loosely the same underlying themes with violence in it. It's probably closer to one he wrote about a guy jumping off a building on a ledge (I can't recall the name of that short story, though I think it appeared in nightmares and dreamscapes). How can I classify it better so I'm not wasting my time and the publishers? Thanks for your time.
