Is Jacqueline Carey's "Kushiel's Legacy" series in scope?
Is there consensus that it is "Fantasy"? Wiki says "historical fantasy or alternate history" in the series page, and "Fantasy" in the first book of the series.
I would personally easily classify it as "Fantasy":
leaving aside literary analysis, it's published by Tor books :)
Heck, the first novel in the series won a Locus Award in Fantasy category.
But would like a second opinion, preferably from someone familiar with the works if possible, since I have seen people classify the books as more of a soft-core BDSM porn than fantasy.
Is there a concern about allowing questions about a work that is, in large part, "adult themed" (heavy BDSM references+erotica)? [ assume that the questions themselves are PG13 or whatever the official cutoff is for SFF.SE ]
The reason for the concern is that, AFAIR, Stack has canceled Area 51 proposal of exuality due to concerns about brand damage (don't recall exact details). If any work will raise the concerns, Carey's would be it.
