Re: Need an expert?

DM = Direct Message, so if they've only listed that as a contact then you would need a Twitter account to get in touch.

Re: Genre

I've always thought of speculative fiction as something that diverges from our current reality. That covers all types of fantasy, alternative history, horror, SF. Something that, while fictional, could actually happen (let's say The Fault in Our Stars) doesn't fall into that category.
