I recently edited a question which had the science-fantasy (I left the tag alone). I recalled having seen that tag before, so I went back and looked at the questions with the tag.
The tag excerpt and tag wiki were the same. They read (past tense):
Science-Fantasy is a genre of speculative fiction that combines tropes and elements common to both Science-Fiction and Fantasy.
I then checked Wikipedia, and found this:
Science fantasy is a mixed genre within the umbrella of speculative fiction which combines tropes and elements from both science fiction and fantasy, and sometimes also incorporates elements of horror. The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction points out that as a genre, science fantasy "has never been clearly defined," and was most commonly used in the period 1950-1966.
First off, the tag wiki is clearly uncited plagiarism and should be cited (which I have just done, and made some other changes). Second, looking at the rest of the Wikipedia page was not any more enlightening. The genre doesn't seem to be very unique, and appears to be more a subset of fantasy than of science fiction.
I'd like to discuss the merits of the tag. Part of me thinks it's useful, part of me thinks it's not useful, and part of me thinks it should be a synonym of fantasy.
What should be done?
