You will see it in blog posts from avid readers and in agent wish lists. They want something new in paranormal. People love the genre, but it has been over-saturated. They crave more than the same old-same old.
The solution? Speculative Fiction. Speculative Fiction is pretty hard to pin down a definition for. But it can be an alternate reality, like Holly Black's White Cat, or a blending of genres such as science-fiction, paranormal, supernatural, fantasy and horror.
The main blend that I've noticed trickling into the shelves (and I expect to see a lot more of it) is sci-fis with a paranormal feel. You might be thinking "What the heck?"
Exhibit A: Virals by Bones author Kathy Reichs. A group of teenagers are exposed to a virus from a wolf cross and their DNA is altered (hence the sci-fi). Their changes also include telepathy (enter the paranormal).
Exhibit B: I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore aka James Frey and Jobie Hughes. A group of aliens are hiding out of earth from another race aliens that are out to destroy them, and take over the earth while they're at it (there's your sci-fi). The good aliens have "legacies", which are powers that they develop as they mature. The powers include telekinesis, fire/heat resistance and animal telepathy (the paranormal factor).
Cross-breeding of genres really opens up a world of opportunities for writers and creates amazing new experiences for readers. It allows boundaries to be pushed and creativity to be maximised. Speculative fiction is something I enjoy and I look forward to seeing the next wave to hit the shelves.
