Subcategories

Crime
Crime fiction is a literary genre covering criminal activity, its motivations and methods, and its eventual resolution. Some works go beyond the crime and deal with the interpersonal dynamics between criminal and fellow criminal, criminal and lawful personage, and other significant people in the same sphere of influence.

Several recurring tropes and sub-genres exist within crime fiction, including detective stories, political thrillers, and heist tales.

The genre is flexible enough to bleed into other fiction genres, such as science fiction and classical horror.

Romantic Fiction
Romantic fiction novels are available in a variety of sub-genres, including historical romance, science fiction, and science fiction. Other divisions in this genre include romance books geared toward teenagers, fiction written for certain ethnic markets, and books that contain religious themes. These sub-genres often have their own sub sub-genres, such as American Western or Regency period novels as a subset of historical romance.

In some cases, romantic fiction may incorporate other fiction genres, such as mystery, fantasy, or science fiction.

Romantic novels may also contain erotic writing, though many sharply limit description of intimate contact between characters.

Thriller

A thriller is a book which is designed to keep the reader or viewer on edge with suspenseful and sensational action. This genre is incredibly large, and thrillers often overlap with pieces of work produced in other genres; mysteries, for example, are often thrillers.

Several characteristics help to define a thriller. Thrillers typically involve sudden plot twists and lots of red herrings, for example, keeping people unsure about what is going to happen. This suspense can get almost unbearable. Thrillers also have a lot of action, which is often chaotic, and they typically feature resourceful heroes and exotic settings.
