Kevin Burton Smith responds to Mark.

Mark asks:

>Could it be that those making these claims feel
insecure about enjoying
>genre fiction and feel a need to elevate any
they do enjoy to give it

Kevin responds:

It's about time that someone point out that out.

(I went through a period of reverse snobbery myself.)

Welllll . . . maybe I haven't lost it completely--but I'm trying.
