Yeah, I'm not quite so sanguine as Rob. At that Brock conference, it was pretty clear to me that the guy was taking direct aim at him. I also think the wall doesn't seem so high to him simply because he's been able to establish himself as a pundit [i:2aj706c5]despite[/i:2aj706c5] his genre credentials, and I think that's a function of his tenacity and impressive skills as a speaker as much as anything else. Every publcist I worked with on my recent Canadian tour commented on how the people who typically line up to interview or profile authors at various media, weren't at all interested in speaking to me. Literary writers with far, far fewer readers have a far easier time than do genre writers. It really speaks to the power of words to pigeonhole. I mean if it's this difficult to crawl out from under a literary epithet, could you imagine a racial or a sexual one? view post
