The tags & seem redundant; does anyone with sufficient rep to propose a synonym agree?

I agree. I propose to make a synonym of . I don't want to have to distinguish between fantasy and science fiction in tags. Some of the questions taggedd are about fantasy already (e.g. 1).

  • please don't use that question as precedent - I picked the only available tag and quite possibly did so incorrectly. I do agree that more SF/F agnostic tags would be better to avoid the pointless "is X SciFi or Fantasy" discussions. Jun 22 '12 at 17:00

I think we should rename to . Leave in place, but clean up those questions so they're properly tagged with . There are questions (example) that are about a history of a specific work/universe that are about history, but not history of the genre in general. I think should be used for these.

  • Sounds like you’re re-purposing history-of for history of a particular franchise (e.g., “When was Firefly cancelled?” history-of firefly), and using genre-history for general questions about, well, the genre’s history. (Or rather, the genres’ histories, for the several genres that are in the scope of this site.) Jun 21 '12 at 19:44
