I ended a recent post by saying, "...I had to learn the hard way how to lighten up and read some genre fiction. More on this later...."
I'll still write more later, but for now, I refer you to John Barach's October 31, 2005 post on my genre of choice, "Clerical Fiction."
I'm still trying to think of the best term for the genre. John mentions the problem with "pastoral" (given that "the historical use of the word...call[s] up images of shepherds in Arcadia"), but I wonder if "clerical" might be just as problematic (conjuring thoughts of office work, secretaries, etc). Would "clergy fiction" be better?
