Quotes: Functional Genre Savvy
"The characters just keep acting like they've read the back cover of the book. They seem to know they're in a rapture story."
The Slacktivist, reviewing Left Behind.

"Haven't you ever been in a fairy tale before? The hero has to make a prophecy come true, and the villain is the one who has to stop him— though in another kind of story, it's more often the other way around. And a hero has to be in trouble from the moment of his birth, or he's not a real hero. It's a great relief to find out about Prince Lir. I've been waiting for this tale to turn up a leading man."
Schmendrick the Magician, The Last Unicorn
