Do you consider Literary Fiction to be better than Genre Fiction?
In the academic world, there is often this divide between 'literary' and 'genre' fiction. Examples of this dispute can be seen with the fiction critic Harold Bloom, who criticizes everyone from Stephen King to Maya Angelou. He even goes out of his way to attack 'poetry slams' which he calls the death of art.
Genre Fiction wins hands down. So called "literary" fiction is usually badly written and extremely pompous.
