Find the earliest Science Fiction book in our library..

SELECT * FROM books WHERE genre = "Fiction" ORDER BY genre DESC, first_published ASC LIMIT 1;

That's my code and I don't know - what's wrong there, I tried many options, but sad nothing works.

Thanks for any help!

They wanted "Science Fiction", not Fiction, and to order by ascending.

SELECT * FROM books WHERE genre = "Science Fiction" ORDER BY genre ASC, first_published LIMIT 1;

:point_right: The genre you are looking for is "Science Fiction" (not just "Fiction").

Also, you don't need to include genre in the ORDER BY clause, since you are limiting the output to a single genre (and a single book).
