Enemies of the Genre List [Mar. 24th, 2004|12:33 am]
Part of The Great Wave Of Futurity

This evening we decided:
a) Mariella Frostrup should go on our 'Enemies of the Genre' List.
Then we realised:
b) We don't yet have an 'Enemies of the Genre' List.
I propose:
c) We should start an 'Enemies of the Genre' List.

Here it is so far:

Enemies of the Genre

Mariella Frostrup
Any suggestions for additions? Should Margaret Atwood go on the list?

I heartily endorse this product and/or service. Although calling it a Rogue's Gallery and coming up with super-villain names for them all would be great. Note to self: Define our names and superpowers.

Niall will be along to defend or condemn his nemesis/sekrit lover soon enough. He keeps changing his position on her. (Fnar)

Do bad SF writers count as Enemies of the Genre?

Note to self: Less notes, more sleeping.

As do I!

Last I heard, she'd recanted. Sort of. Admitted that some people might refer to what she writes as 'science fiction', anyway.

Enemies Within, perhaps.

That's a bit harsh. We should reserve that designation for writers are in the SF space but aren't SF. Which, i suppose, might be your definition of a bad SF writer.

L. Ron Hubbard.


Not an enemy of the genre specifically - an enemy of humanity.

Case dismissed!

ALSO: I notice that the title for this community is 'Fandom 2.0'; The Geekstalt is not Fandom 2.0, it is merely one of the entities which make up this great wave of futurity which is even now poised to break apocalyptically over the coastline of the unsuspecting genre. Please correct this, kthxbai.

We should have that list, too.

Kewl!

I totally agree with that Blond Scandinavian Bint being on The List.

Er, as to who *else* qualifies... I'd add Roger Corman, but I'd probably be in a minority.

Could we put Will Smith in for trying to make SF movies far too macho and Robot Smash? Or am I on a hiding to nothing there...
