    Ooh, tough.. I'd say Sci-fi over fantasy by a hair.

    Steampunk first, then Fantasy, and then Cyberpunk.

    actually steampunk is a sub-genre of cyberpunk, the context is the same and it's just the environment that changes....if you have to differentiate between them , you'd have to put Biopunk as well on this poll.

    I went with fantasy but a little sci-fi is sometimes in order. Wouldn't steam-cyber-punk fall into one of those categories? Urban fantasy? Sword and sorcery? I'd say it all fits under the fantasy tent.

    I like all of them. I get excited by any of them as long as the content of the book is good.

    Mythology's my first love, but since it's so closely related to Fantasy, it gets my vote. Still, I'll never turn my nose up at a good piece of Sci-fi.
