Usually, “genre adjacent” is used to identify something, usually a book or television show, sometimes an activity, infrequently just about anything else, that is not-genre, but that is related to genre, or might be genre with a slightly different definition, or is just something that those who engage with genre often find interesting.
For example: The film The Right Stuff can be considered genre-adjacent because science fiction is so closely aligned with space flight.
Or, seemingly a longer stretch, trains are genre-adjacent because so many fans of genre are also fans of trains and have taken steps to include trains in their fannish activities…such as scheduling group trips to conventions via rail, or writing up long discourses on trains and rail history in their fanzines.
Likewise, we here at Amazing Stories consider the activities of the partners of Fans to be genre-adjacent, even if the work itself is not genre.
Based on that interpretation, we are pleased to bring you this announcement of a new release, authored by the partner of Al Sirois, a contributor to our magazine and website, an artists and an author:
Unable to reconcile her monastic existence with the plight of the community’s poor, a young nun leaves the convent, only to become ensnared in her best friend’s crumbling marriage.
This new release is now available to purchase on Amazon.
Honestly, you can’t get much more adjacent than that!
To learn more, you can visit the author on her website Grace Marcus.
