How is it that Long Emergency, which is speculative, but based on science, is fiction and The Truth about Hillary, which is little more than vendetta and rumor is in non-fiction (see http://www.livejournal.com/users/vanaabegra/17018.html)?

Er? Although I can't for the life of me find a definitive catagory for either book on Amazon, the "Look for similar items by catagory" section puts both in non-fiction (or biography for the Hillary smearjob).

I love the picture hackjob they did for Hillary though... damn, I'd swear she was going to kill me just looking at that book cover. Asshattery* at its finest!

* which, I just learned, originated on fark.com

This is how they were categorized at Borders when I wandered through yesterday...

Aha. Borders must have been confused, since both should be non-fiction.

The categories used by publishers are sales classifications rather than having much to do with reality. Important to keep that in mind. :)
