Apologies for the late arrival of this weekend’s guest post. I guess I wasn’t quite as well caught up as I thought! But read on for a really interesting piece from Kieran Mathers about a pernicious trope of modern storytelling…
I’ve been reading a lot of fantasy fiction recently. This is, in part, to build the style of The Darkness Embraces (still no news from Hydra, I might add) and also just to build my range. The more you read, the better you become as a writer.
I’ve noticed a fashion developing, first in fantasy fiction but now spreading out into the wider literary world. You can see it on TV and movies as well and this fashion really annoys me.
