So if that's the case, we should have "Sci-Fi and Fantasy" with one nom, "Sci-Fi" with one nom and fantasyfan's nom unclear as to if he wants to support Hamlet53's nom or nominate only "Fantasy" himself.
I was actually supporting Hamlet53'z nomination. I really tend to see fantasy and Science-fiction as sibling genre. In fact, I believe that there is such a category as science-fantasy--though the term isn't probably used all that much. I would regard Jack Vance's The Dying Earth
as an example of science-fantasy.
So. If you wish to use my supportive vote for fantasy in combination with the support for science-fiction and thus combine them into a single category--which is what I gather to be the proposal under consideration--then I would be all for it.
