Problem with SQL Reporting Task #2 - finding the oldest Science Fiction book

I can't seem to get this to work. I am not sure if Science Fiction is a book title or a genre - or if I have something wrong.

SELECT * FROM books WHERE title LIKE "%Science Fiction%" ORDER BY first_published ASC LIMIT 1;

You're really close, but it's not the title that should be compared to "Science Fiction", it's the genre.

Next time, if you're not sure, just try it both ways!
