Adventure Novel Genres
Here are the the subgenres for adventure novels that we are especially excited about publishing:
Epic Adventure: Epic adventure novels include stories full of grandeur and heroism. The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, and Harry Potter could all be considered epic adventure novels.
Imaginary Voyage: This adventure subgenre creates a narrative in which utopian or satirical themes are woven into a story where the protagonist travels on a grand journey—but often, that journey isn’t real, or might not be real. Think about Gulliver’s Travels and you’ve got the idea.
Lost World: Lost world stories often combine elements of fantasy, science fiction, and adventure; they involve the discovery of lost places, lost races, lost cities, and lost lands. Often, they’re about the discovery of a new (or forgotten) world that is out of time, out of place, or both. Tomb Raider, Journey to the Center of the Earth, King Kong, and Dinotopia are all examples of stories involving a lost world.
Men’s Adventure: This adventure subgenre includes often horrifying tales of adventure or wartime feats of daring, exotic travel, conflict with wild animals, or vigilante crusaders. This was particularly popular during the heyday of pulp publishing, when thrilling tales of adventure by explorers like Allan Quartermain ruled the day.
Milesian Tale: This subgenre of adventure features a fable or folktale about love and adventure that often includes erotic and sexually themed content.
Steampunk: Set in an alternate past where steam power allows the use of incredible technology, steampunk novels often include sweeping elements of adventure and derring-do. Does your novel include swashbuckling airship pirates or swarms of invading steam-powered dino-bots? It’s probably steampunk!
