Everyone’s a critic. Then they die.

Who’d want to kill a book critic? I mean, really.
This is actually kind of a nifty idea. The first post is up at Revenge Lit, and it’s a bit of a giggle:

Simon Lacerous’ column “The Last Word” routinely excoriated literary works: if realistic, they lacked imagination; if fantastic, they lacked veracity; if existential, they lacked moral compass; if moralistic, they were fascist.

And, what’s wrong with that, precisely?

I just hope that if anyone kills me off in print, someone will ensure that I’m properly avenged.
