Question Is paranormal classed as fantasy or scifi?

Or should it be put under horror?

Whats your opinion on this Genre?

Is paranormal fiction?

Depending on the story line it could be any or all of the three. There are few hard and fast lines between genres

I think it's be closer to fantasy than sci-fi, meself. Or maybe horror, depending on how it's treated. Sci-fi is usually more science/future based, whereas paranormal stuff is more mystic/past based (what with all the ghosts and whatnot). I mean to say that sci-fi looks towards the future for its stories, whereas paranormal looks more to the past. (I am, of couse, generalising hugely here, but you catch my drift I hope) (And if you do catch my drift, please then return it to me, as I can only move in straight lines without it) (Aha)

The reason for the Para-question was
-Was i justified in Stocking Paranormal Fiction when OR specialises in SciFi and Fantasy? And why Para and not Horror?
Over time and some book buying the answer was yes... Para sells.
