Rod, he has a hierarchy of genres. Genre 1 has 6379 child genres and a
book can be in more than one of these.
Vitaly, though LIMIT makes this look like a small query, DISTINCT
requires the whole result set to be retrieved. 0.7 seconds doesn't look
so bad for several thousand rows. Did you try with other genre_ids?
Maybe a merge join is not the best choice. Set enable_mergejoin to
false and see whether you get a (hopefully faster) hash join, assuming
that sort_mem is large enough to keep the hash table in memory.
If you send me your table contents I'll try it on Linux.
