Glossed world

Out of ideas for mash-ups or the next big thing?

For the A-Z Challenge I'm posting 26 suggestions for new genres. How serious each is I leave you to decide; I have my eye firmly on this debate.

Glossed world

A narrative centring on a hidden, incomprehensible or otherwise imperceptible aspect of existence, whether a dimension, plane or alternate reality, or a conceptual, imagined or oneiric space, or a space of another nature entirely. This world may be no more than an intimation, may interact with the known world to a lesser or greater degree or may be at the heart of events as the protagonists encounter, enter or explore. You could think of it as King Solomon's Mines meets Mr Leary meets the fictional universes of Hereticwerks.
