Hi, Mark. I don't perceive a general anti-academic bias. There have
been comments about the view, held by some academics, that popular
literature (hardboiled included) is somehow different from "real"
literature. This is a valid criticism, in my opinion. Other than that,
I don't think anybody has criticized academia or literary criticism as
a whole, though there have been occasional jokes about jargon,
"theory", deconstruction and such. There are quite a few academics here, by the way...
It probably doesn't need to be spelled out, but the list does welcome
