An *Enema* to the Muse?

Some time ago, themoniker linked to this brilliant, brilliant essay on the crappiness of science-fiction-and-fantasy plots, by Nick Lowe.

I don't read science fiction any more, and haven't read any of the works mentioned except Tolkien's and Adams's, but Lowe brings citations to make his points. And ach, what a scathing tongtypewriter Mr. Lowe had...

Heartily recommended.
