Is where a place for superhero fiction under the fantasy genre or does it belong under another banner

Hi there! Because superhero fiction is such a niche category, we don't have a special place for it carved out on our Genre Map. Having said that, though, it doesn't mean you can't find a place for it on Book Country!


You are right: a fantasy subgenre is your best bet. Since superhero fiction originates in comic books, comic fantasy might be a good fit. Contemporary fantasy is another great option. Take a look at the genre descriptions, and they will help you decide where to shelve your book on BC. 


I think it's still a good idea to mention in your About the Book that it is a piece of superhero fiction!


Hope this helps. Happy reading and reviewing!
