Do you mean they don't have a "sci-fi & fantasy" section, and the books are just lumped together under "fiction"?


Sorry my response was poorly worded.

They have a section that is labeled either just "Science Fiction" or "Science Fiction and Fantasy".
So they do not try to differentiate between the two.

I know at least one large chain of stores that merged the two into one section. The biggest problem was, they gave the merged section a space smaller than either one of the individual sections used to occupy. And then they dedicated at least a third of that smaller space to graphic novels


Not sure if I agree with the assertion that it is "smaller'. Certainly a lot bigger than when I first started buying books. That is supported by some numbers that Gardner Dozois presented in the forward to the The Years Best Science Fiction series a number of years ago which did a comparison between total books of all types in the 70s (72?) with the number just is Science Fiction and Fantasy for the year he did the comparison.
