Go Westworld on it. A bit sci-fi or fantasy.

There's a thought: a Western with dragons. A sci-fi Western is just The Matrix.

More westerns with aliens and dolphins attacking pirate ships.

Keeping genres unique is fun and all, but clearly extra in the grand scheme of things -- a bravura performance on your part over and above the awesomeness that is NIAD. I think everyone will think that is entirely your call. And, to state the obvious, there is plenty more to explore in every genre -- except Westerns (haha, just kidding -- I loved that one).

Oh cool. Now I can check to see if my pf-genre calls for each NIAD were on the mark. (Can I get another dining-out bet with my wife out of this? Maybe, maybe.)

Agreed. It is also one of the most cohesive in reading.*

* Also includes the funniest chapter by far, namely (plot spoiler alert) the genre-busting chapter with the flying saucer.

I've never written any sort of Western-type stuff and would welcome the opportunity; though I suspect I'd go off-piste. Just the opportunity to use spittoon in context is a pull.

Likewise for the opportunity to use 'spittoon' out of context.
