  1. All I can say is: they don't review my books in the London Times either. (They did review one of them in the New Scientist, but I think that was some sort of mistake.) It seems a bit much for someone writing in a commercial genre field to complain that his books aren't getting taken seriously. I thought that was supposed to be a strength of genre fiction, that it is free of snobbish constraints.
