Not telling... ;)
(There is some extra yellow text on the next bit of fence that seems to clarify the question, but I like the element of found Koan)

Yeah Miss, what's a non-genre? A cross-genre? A new genre?

who knows, but it seems to be a Poly Semantic can of worms in certain circles, cs.

I could name the suburb as a retort here, Nabakov. ;)
(Possibly not the epicentre of hip.)
However I thought I was walking in an Open Field public environment when I happened to spot it the other morning.

OTOH - I see what you mean. (I'm a bit slow in the morning)

Both N and M need work. And V would seem to be struggling here.

Genre-X. Somewhere between bad-genre novel and bad genre-novel.

GNW - how about a future historical novel?

T - boom boom...
(Wonder if John Le Carre is Gen re X ?)

Also - through that Turbulence site above saw this today, which might help the quality control. Or not...
