Speculative fiction is an umbrella term that covers the spectacular and imaginative genres of fiction, such as science fiction, fantasy, horror, urban fantasy, paranormal, superheroes, alternate history, post-apocalyptic, and apocalyptic. It is quite a broad term, and one people will argue over. Personally, I include magical realism and folktales, though not everyone does.
