Far more even than I was expecting. I feel a new sense of hope for my beloved sci-fi (y).
My fear that I was writing for a diminishing audience and that I would have to jump ship, or at least hybridise, to reach a contemporary audience may have been unfounded.

Generally sci-fi edges it for me because it explores "the unknown" in which elements like time travel and multiple universes are being discussed and looked into today, whereas despite fantasy being limitless, it tends to focus more on the things we know to be imaginary and based on myth and lore

I prefer fantasy because I like the more medieval setting rather than a technological setting, I do like some science fiction books but overall I enjoy fantasy more.
I've finished writing a sci-fi novel in which all man-made technology has disappeared - so it is essentially a medieval (post-apocalyptic - cities are long gone) setting. Perhaps I can share the website link with you?
