The Genre Masher

(Hey, there! We at HelpEdit love to provide free writing and publishing resources. If you like this one, we’d really appreciate it if you it, or share it with your friends!)

Michelle here. A long time ago, I threw together this PHP code to randomly mash together genres. These are great for friendly fiction games, writing prompts, and the occasional last-minute NaNoWriMo concept.

A new mash-up appears every time the page loads! Hover over a genre to see a brief description.

Combine Horror

with Lost World

Here’s the master list. Have a suggestion? Want to show off the genre-mashing story concepts you’ve come up with? Tweet us @HelpEdit!
