Main Discussion Topic: Sometimes works of simulation get classified in a different genre based on the era we're looking at them from. Jules Verne's stories look like a species of fantasy to us today, but they looked a lot more scientific to the people of Verne's day. But what if we didn't just want to blur genres? What if a work or a series of works just decides to switch genre somewhere in the middle? That is, you're reading a science fiction story, and then somewhere in the middle, it changes to a fantasy. Or vice versa. Also, what's scarier than Frankenstein's monster? Frankenstein's mother-in-law, of course!
