There’s a great post and conversation going on today over at Galaxy Express about the nature of Science Fiction Romance.
Specific topics include heat levels (i.e., how much sexual detail should SFR novels contain?), parenting issues (specifically showing more heroines who are also mothers), how to interest female teen readers with a goal of keeping them as adult SFR readers, and a call for a more varied ethnicity in the subgenre.
As a result, Heather and I have started up a new Shelfari group to discuss these and other issues important to Science Fiction Romance. Please come take a look and even join in the discussion.
