A note to those doing the A-Z Blogging Challenge for April. This goes live on the 27th which is a Wednesday. I think that is the Letter W for the challenge that day. Those doing short stories could always do a double whammy with one post, lol, just a thought….
Another note inspired by a comment: Definition of Speculative Fiction
Speculative fiction is a term, attributed to Robert Heinlein in 1941, that has come to be used to collectively describe works in the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror.
