What's in a Genre?

In a novel where nothing is as it seems, the very genre it appears to adopt needs to be questioned. Many readers of Kuan's Wonderland have remarked that although it uses fantasy/sci-fi elements in its narrative, it stands apart from those genres in being an allegorical novel about the world as it is. That is what they have found that subversive nature most appealing. So regardless of whether you are normally keen on tales that venture into surreal circumstances, imbibe the fable.
