General Fiction

As its name suggests, General Fiction is a genre that encompasses all contents and stories that don’t fit into a certain fictional subgenre. This genre is also known as contemporary fiction and it usually focuses on the life and times of an adult, discussing the struggles and experiences faced by this protagonist. General fiction comes with details and vivid characterizations and features mature themes most times. Enjoy much contemporary fiction content here at Inkhood as our library and collections are sure to satisfy your yearnings for mature fiction content.


Fiction is a broad category of content and stories that are majorly born out of the author’s imaginations and creativity. Fictions are not real stories, no matter how real and original they sound. However, many authors draw inspiration from the experiences of other people or theirs to fuel the creation of many fictional contents. Due to the broad nature of the genre, there are many sub-classifications under it. We have subgenres such as general fiction, romance, mystery and thriller, diverse literature, and many others. We understand that this genre is the most popular among most readers and thus, we have an extensive library that seeks to satiate your reading appetite.


When authors write fiction, they let their imagination run wild. One of the results of these wild imaginations is a content genre known as Paranormal. While this type of story is based in modern-day and times and involves normal people, the occurrences of this story are way beyond “normal”. The events in these stories are usually above scientific explanations. Paranormal stories usually feature the experiences of a normal human in a paranormal world and their interactions with other normal and paranormal characters such as werewolves, vampires, ghosts, and many like that.


Werewolves are mythical creatures and stories about these beasts in human form stems from a long history of folklore and myths. These stories have inspired a sizable number of authors who have now formed a genre named after these mythical characters. The purpose of the Werewolf genre is to narrate the experiences of these creatures and their struggles to balance lycanthropy and its primal urges with normal human lives. This genre also discusses the struggles for hierarchy within the pack and the protagonist’s struggles to suppress bestial inclinations.


Thrillers are a popular literary genre that focuses on solving mysteries and revolves around detective-like works. While the genre is very similar to the Mystery genre, it is fast-paced and features more action, violence, excitement, and tension. As against the style in Mystery, the thriller genre also features crime or mystery on a larger scale, usually bordering around a well-coordinated heist or even espionage. The protagonist in Thrillers usually faces dangerous situations and circumstances in solving the mystery and requires a high level of skill and endurance to achieve their set goals. At Inkhood, we will treat you to a wide variety of Thriller titles, allowing you to enjoy a fictional journey of intrigue, tension, and excitement full of adrenaline.


The mystery genre shares a lot of similarities with the thriller genre. The two genres basically focus on the same type of content or stories, and that is unraveling mysteries and unanswered questions. The major difference between the two genres is the style adopted in telling the story. For mystery content, the protagonist is usually a detective or a law enforcement agent. Moreso, this genre uses less action, tension, or violence. It features more logic, fact-finding, and suspense than adrenaline-pumping excitement. Lastly, the crime or puzzle involved in this genre is usually not big or on large scale like that of the Thriller genre.
