In my mind, there isn’t much distinction between Adventure and Fantasy because Fantasy has Adventure in it. In awards books, I often see Action and Adventure clumped together, and Fantasy and Sci-Fi clumped together, but then, what is Adventure and how is it not Fantasy…I’m confuzzled.
You can still call something Adventure even if the places are all made-up, right? Even if the story is fantasy? So…would that be considered a cross-over genre?
Is LOTR considered Adventure or Fantasy? They DO go on an adventure, don’t they?
My WIP has MC traveling. I categorized it Fantasy. But…can’t it also be Adventure?
Uhhh…thoughts please. I’m clueless.
