The Sorry State of Modern “Literature”

This graphic speaks volumes, and loudly.

Tired of wading through fetid piles of genre garbage? Of reading the same cookie-cutter books over and over, with little changed but character names and small details? If so, I’m the writer for you! Sign up for my monthly e-newsletter (click the blue button on the right of this page), and check out my wild, daring novel Orange Rain, for starters.

The Venn of Koontz

Ours is the generation that needs to overcome this nonsense–to start taking risks again, to write books that are distinct and memorable, ones that reach for something truly great; if we missed, at least we failed in a noble pursuit. I’m talking about altering the entire motherfucking literary landscape here! The baby-boomers had their chance, and most of them failed woefully (see above). Now it’s time for US to go down in history as the generation that reinvigorated the stagnant cesspool that the world of published books has become. Will you join me? Take my hand, I’ll lead the way…

    I’ve enjoyed Koontz and Cussler but the plots are the same just different geography and trophy to find. The characters all seem to slip out of the most closed death situations that it is hard to slip from reality to our fiction imagination. The real crap in literature is the stuff the New Yorker has published as poetry for decades.
