I find it hard describing what type of books they are to friends. For eg, 
someone will say that _To say nothing of the dog_ sounds more like a mystery 
than science fiction, and I say it's both, plus history and romance. And I've 
recommended _Bellwether_ and _Passage_ to people who don't like (in what I 
must say is limited experience) science fiction or fantasy. 

Actually, now I think about it, I believe many of her books are well received 
(critically) outside of the SF field.
