All those Science Fiction books that claim not to be, Oryx & Crake, the Road or Stone Gods etc, shall henceforth be known as YesF! Wake up and smell the neutrinos!

All those Science Fiction books that are proud of being Science Fiction shall henceforth also be known as YesF! It is a proud heritage!

Anyone who denies this shall be known as StupidF!

Ursula LeGuin is your champion. Other offenders include Jurassic Park and Handmaid's Tale. Brave New World is also SF.

Does YesF include fantasy novels that refuse to admit they're fantasy? I'm looking at you, JK Rowling.

What do we call books that pretend to be SF but are just cowboys and indians or knights and cavaliers only with lasers? NotF? LessF? No-Fing-Way?
