Book genres

Does anybody know of a good list of book genres, particularly for fiction? Preferably with definitions, although usually my problem 'identifying' the genre of a book is that the program I use limits a book to one genre. Fortunately it'll let me define my own, so I have things like Western Fiction, Western Mystery, Western Romance, Western War, etc. The problem is consistency-what I need is a comprehensive list I can pick from. (It doesn't really need to be that detailed as, since I'm entering the genre manually, I can pick multiple categories & combine them-as long as I'm consistent about the category names.)

Change the software.
Or you'll have a cartesian product with all the genres you read (Western Fantasy Romance Thriller, Western Historical Fiction Action Adventure, .... )

This is a good list, minus "Short Fiction", "Children" and "Young Adult", then add either "Mainstream" or "General".

It kind of depends on how specific you want to get.

Thank you-exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. (And thanks to Clever for the other links-they'll help me refine the list for my own usage.)
