There's a faction that believes the terms Science Fiction, Sci-Fi, SF, F&SF, and sometimes Speculative Fiction are all euphemisms for the same genre. There's another faction that insists they are at least 3, possibly 5, different categories, and that it's insulting to describe a book by the wrong one. There's another faction that believes it's one genre (or maybe two) but only one term (or two) is actually correct, and the other labels are derogatory.
I'm fine with anything as long as we don't call it Syfy.
