Do you like works that have both science fiction and fantasy elements, mystery and western, romance and scifi, etc.? Why?

I don't just like them. I DO them!
While I appreciate genres with a more straightforward and narrow style, I take the cross genres because they can be much more versatile and interesting, since the writer often leads his/her audience to explore new and unique concepts that could be a refreshing break from normal genres.
Should be back by February 2010...

I love to mix my genres as well. I think it's good to break away from a more...used style.

Absolutely. Almost all my favourite stories are a cross of something (For example, the short story Troll Bridge is a subtle mixture of classic fantasy with modern horror) and the same applies to my favourite movies (Body horror movies are a great example, which are the TRUE sci-fi horror movies, like Alien or VideoDrome. There are way too many people that take sci-fi horror the wrong way. I'm sorry, but just because you add a scientist to a ghost story doesn't make it sci-fi horror.)

It's like Dan Brown or Stephanie Meyer.
He incorporates fiction with totally real stuff.
Her new book, The Host, is romance/sci-fi. I haven't read it yet, but I did buy it.

It's okay, I guess. I don't like it much when a good fantasy world which should be a completely new world is used as the actual world though. a bit like the Pure Dead books by Cornelia Funke...
People assume that time
is a strict progression of cause to effect,
but actually, from a nonlinear,
non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like
a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey...

I've never really found one that's cross-genre, 'cause I usually read good ol' fiction.
