I wrote where genre=fantasy kept showing error message. What should I do?

Select * From books Order by first_published asc, genre asc Where genre=fantasy limit 5;

fantasy is text, so it has to be in quotes:

SELECT * FROM books ORDER BY first_published ASC, genre ASC WHERE genre='fantasy' LIMIT 5;

Thanks for the reply. But I still receive error message, I really have no idea where went wrong. Thank you.

SELECT * FROM books ORDER BY first_published ASC, genre ASC WHERE genre='Fantasy' LIMIT 5;
