    If it's a lie it's fiction.

    It's fiction, of course, but you can describe it as "based on true events" or "semi-autobiographical" (which is what many first novels seem to be).

    Source(s): The difference between non-fiction and fiction isn't that one's true and the other is made-up, it's whether the writer intends the reader to take it as true or made-up. If you add made-up stuff to a true story, the only honest way to describe it is as fiction.

    Of course it's fiction if it's been changed from being 100% true.

    Any 'enhanced' memoir becomes fiction.

    If by fantasy you mean the supernatural, then those do classify as fictions.
