Writingalife's Blog Les moutons électriques — le blog | Humeurs et actualités des Moutons électriques, éditeur geraldinebrooks Darren Shan Supernatural Fiction Supernatural fiction (properly, "supernaturalist fiction"[1]) is a literary genre exploiting or requiring as plot devices or themes some contradictions of the commonplace natural world and materialist assumptions about it. In its broadest definition, supernatural fiction includes examples of weird fiction, horror fiction, fantasy fiction, and such sub-genres as vampire literature and the ghost story. Elements of supernatural fiction can be found in writing from genres such as science fiction. Amongst academics, readers and collectors, however, supernatural fiction is often classed as a discrete genre defined by the elimination of "horror", "fantasy" and elements important to other genres.[1] The one genre supernatural fiction appears to embrace in its entirety is the traditional ghost story.[2] In the twentieth century, supernatural fiction became associated with psychological fiction. The result is that the supernatural is only one possible explanation for what has been described.

Megan Elizabeth Dictionnaire mondial de la BD La bande dessinée a donc son dictionnaire — le summum de respectabilité. Sur la couverture cartonnée, il y a marqué «Larousse», c’est un grand livre bien épais, avec un cahier coloré qui sépare l’ouvrage en deux parties, et le seul poids dans nos mains suffirait à forcer le respect. Bref, c’est un dictionnaire comme on a appris à les connaître, un vrai — et ce, jusqu’à l’illustration de la couverture, et son patchwork de personnages laissant entrevoir la richesse du contenu de ces (nombreuses) pages. Une navigation difficile Ne vous laissez pas abuser par le cahier coloré central, qui pourrait évoquer les feuilles roses des citations latines, lesquelles marquaient autrefois une démarcation entre les noms propres et les noms communs. Apparaît alors une hiérarchie établie de facto par la sélection opérée par Patrick Gaumer, et déterminée par la présence (ou non) d’une notule spécifique, ou (honneur plus mineur) d’une mention accompagnée d’un renvoi. Penser collectif ?
