About the Genres

Science fiction is a genre of fiction dealing with imaginary but more
or less plausible (or at least non-supernatural) content such as future
settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, parallel universes,
aliens, and paranormal abilities. Exploring the consequences of scientific innovations
is one purpose of science fiction, making it a "literature of ideas"

Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural
phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting. Many works within the
genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic is common. Fantasy is generally distinguished
from the genre of science fiction by the expectation that it steers clear of
scientific themes, though there is a great deal of overlap between the two,
both of which are subgenres of speculative fiction.
