Over at Bev’s Books, Bev has started a series of posts “Ten Nights of Love” which will look at the “dividing line between romance and erotic romance” via the lens of chosen romances she’s learn through the years. Her posts struck me as related to our periodic discussions of heat degree in science fiction romance albeit from a more historic perspective on trends. Based upon the critiques, it was a really polarizing story.

I borrowed or purchased copies of the books, and embarked upon slightly experiment to seek out the answers to my questions.

As a lifelong SF and fantasy fan, I can smile in amusement when encountering B-movie SF tropes like floating brains as a outcome of they maintain a particular attraction for me, even whereas I frown in concern each time an author recycles them. That’s not to say authors can’t or shouldn’t use them, however I question how effectively these tropes may be reinvented nowadays. I perceive the context in which they initially made their appearances so it’s not a WTF? However, readers newer to SFR could have a different response, and I fear it may not be a positive one.
