While I prefer sci-fi and fantasy for most of my reading, I would hate to see the book club look like:
2nd chance
Science fiction
Fantasy
Urban fantasy
Steampunk
Golden age sci-fi
Science Fiction Fact*
Hugo/Nebula winners
Splatterpunk
etc.

*Token non-fiction selection describing some sci-fi technology that is now available instead of just science fiction.
I quite agree, but I don't think that would happen. However, if it did, it would simply turn into the SF/Fantasy/Steampunk etc Club and another more broadly based Book Club would form with people who wanted to experience various genres.

Or maybe those people, if they were in a minority, would join the Literary Book Club if they aren't there already! Either way, I think it would clarify what the majority of members are interested in reading.
