THE NEED FOR GENRE – WHO DECIDES? PHILIP REEVE AND L. A. WEATHERLY IN CONVERSATION WITH KATHERINE WEBBER – “We have an instinct to need to label books but who does the labeling? The reader, the author, the retailer or the publisher? Does it help readers by guiding them to books they may enjoy or result in narrow reading? Philip’s Predator Cities series came to characterize ‘steampunk’. His classic ‘space opera’ Railhead is a deliberate move away from that label and the trend for dystopian fiction. Following on from her ‘paranormal romance’ trilogy Angel, Lee Weatherly wanted to move away from writing in any specific genre. Since writing the Broken trilogy her readers have talked of it as ‘dieselpunk’.” Waterstones Piccadilly, 203/206 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9HD
