Which is why I didn't say that*. I chose not to say "Urban Fantasy" as I figured that would be one clue too many... as it was I suspected the very next person to guess within five minutes of my posting.

[EDIT]
I suppose "Contemporary Literature" would have been a better genre descriptor.
[/EDIT]

I should have tried to dig deeper and more obscure... but I was about to leave for work, so "easy on me" won the day.


* Also didn't know that was a genre. Huh. Another genre to ignore...

I wouldn't have used the word "genre"; "Medium: Modern/Contemporary Literature" would have been my word choice.

Format != Genre, after all.
