Differences Between General Fic and Literary Fic?


And then there are Poppy Z Brite’s works. Let’s not go there,

I like my vampires classical.


Classical works for me too.

Classical monsters are my favorite.

Not much for ‘sparkly’ vampires, not much for the new werewolves (got my eyes burned reading a werewolf that became bestiality - totally grossed me out.)


Literature seems more subtle and internal with less reliance on plot. It’s held up as the best of the best (rather than genre fiction, although it takes the best of the genre stories, too.) It all comes down to pretense.
