I am reading Moon Shot, a pretty good collection of science fiction mystery stories and it got me thinking about crossing genres. It's one of those things that sounds like a good idea - commercially. "Hey, if we write a story with elves and cowboys we'll get both the western fans and the fantasy fans!"
For those of you who remember Venn diagrams... you start with this:
I do know that some authors manage to cross borders successfully. Like mysteries about sports.
Or mysteries set in a fantasy world.
Or yes, mystery-science fiction.
