Scott, I'd appreciate your take on this posted 27 October 2005 in Author Q & AScott, I'd appreciate your take on this by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

because I sense a great possibility for the merging of complex, 'true' characterizations with the tropes so common to speculative fiction.

As far as I'm concerned, pulp genre fiction stands among the last great literary frontiers. Literature is type of communication, which means that it's a type of circuit between author and reader, the culture of composition and the culture of reception. This is why I think much of what passes for 'mainstream literature' isn't actually literary at all, but rather a form of writing that religiously conforms to a very specific set of expectations. A 'holier than thou' genre, in effect.

I'd be interested to hear what you think of my little column. view post
