    Why Does Genre Matter? There's the literary bastardisation of the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics — where parallel universes and counterfactuals proliferate.

After her family moves into a new house, Coraline discovers a locked door leading to an eerie mirror version of her home containing an Other Mother with button eyes and a greedy sort of love for the child.

    In a quantum physics experiment gone wrong a Neanderthal scientist is accidentally transported into the universe of Homo sapiens. This genre is about on-going stories of two or more generations of a family. So here are 10 outstanding stories in which reality gets just a little bit bendy.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll Lewis Carroll's world, riddled with paradox and with the feel of hallucination as Jefferson Airplane noticedmight be called the ground zero of alternative universe fiction. As that seemingly straightforward journey grows ever more arduous, the book moves fluidly between the present and the past, gradually uncovering the race-related trauma that has shaped this interracial family.
