Give it your best shot, and if you still don't get it right, show your code here so we can help you work it out.

To avoid confusion and give yourself the best chance at a rapid response, always start a fresh question instead of adding one as an "answer" to someone else's!

But in this case you're close, but have a few syntax issues:

  • "Science Fiction" should be used in the WHERE clause, and compared to genre
  • first_published should be used in the ORDER BY clause
