Saturday Miscellany — 11/8/14

Odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

  • A Better Way to Think About the Genre Debate — despite the not-so-humble title, Joshua Rothman has some interesting things to say about genre.
  • Patrick Rothfuss Responds to Academic Snobbery — Rothfuss has a more colorful and succinct take on the genre debate as we see here, in his video response to a University professor not accepting his work as befitting a paper in their class.
  • Speaking of Rothfuss, in For Love and Sass — one blogger responds to many one-star reviews of Rothfuss’ new book. It’s pretty funny even if you’ve never read Rothfuss.
  • Dear Grimdark… — Sam Sykes writes a letter to Grimdark fantasy.
