|tgoyette||The Doomfarers of Coramonde was a good book that brought an armored personnel carrier from the Vietnam war into a fantasy to shoot up a dragon and other stuff happens. What cross-genre books do you like?||2014-03-17 17:57:24|

|Bottomdweller||I'm a fan of the MOVIE Cowboys and Aliens - that's a cross-genre movie, Western and Sci-Fi. Harrison Ford was (as usual) great. Loved the premise. ||2014-03-19 11:53:03|
|Bottomdweller||Cowboys and Aliens was a Graphic Novel - by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg - so I GUESS that counts, sorta. Jon Favreau (The Big Empty) directed the movie and Daniel Craig was the leading man. "Cowboys & Aliens received mixed reviews, with critics generally praising its acting but criticizing its blend of the Western and science fiction genres." (Wiki) - so it's tough out there for a cross-genre.||2014-03-19 11:59:17|
|mark211||Not quite sure if this qualifies as a mixed genre or not, but I found Marie Phillips 'Gods Behaving Badly' pretty entertaining. The plot is straightforward enough: the entire pantheon of Greek gods and godesses are still alive and well but in reduced circumstances, all of them sharing the same old house in a London suburb. It's mixed genre insofar as each of the gods is re-imagined in more mundane circumstances (e.g. Dionysus is a techno club DJ; Aphrodite is a phone sex worker, Hera is a lecturer etc.). ||2014-03-19 13:43:39|
|r.tornello||Then there's the movie Hitch, not a book but it was written by Kevin Bisch.
|r.tornello||oops wrong title, I meant Handcock. Hey I'm not a big movie watcher, I don't follow People magazine and all that. I just remember the story.

Give generously to the United Wa - uh, we mean Quantum Muse. It keeps Mike off the streets from scaring small children and the Web Goddess from spray painting Town Hall - again.
