"The Return of the Genre-Zombie"

Wow. You've got to read this. Ursula K. Le Guin On Serious Literature (as opposed to genre fiction, of course). Joi, it's too bad you never read my blog anymore, because you would love this. Hmm, maybe I'll send it to you... Yes, very funny. I found it, if you care, because I recently read Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, which I'll probably review sometime soonish. That led me to the author's website, which led me to Writer Unboxed ("about the craft and business of genre fiction"), a comment in a recent post led me to a post on Genre and Literature, again by Juliet Marillier, which led me to the topic of this post.
