Genre

Influences
Ray Bradbury, Orson Scott Card, Stephen King, Victor Hugo

Member Since
December 2008


Scott M. Roberts never set out to be a writer of dark fiction. Oh, no: he was originally destined to write new-age spiritualistic self-help books.

But his parents moved him at a young and tender age to Texas. Tragedy averted, he was now free to delve the dark, twisted canyons of the human heart without feeling the need to apologize for what he found there.

Just got word that my short story, The End-of-the-World Pool, will be reprinted in an IGMS award anthology later this year!


Woo-hoo!

2nd Reacher novel I've read; not quite as good as the first one. I'm afraid I figured this one out pretty early. More than that, didn't care as much for...pretty much anyone here.

This is an early Child novel; the first one I read was from later in hi

Child's smart prose is hidden behind the genre. 'One shot' is economical and efficient the way true poetry should be, and it reaches (heh-- get it? *Reaches*) the reader in a visceral way. Short but description-rich sentences lend both to the conveya ...more

“I maintain that cultural sensitivity should be replaced by cultural awareness. Awareness implies research, consideration, thought, and judiciousness....

Sensitivity denies equal access to language. It segregates and censors based on the background of the writer rather than the content of the story. No society can embrace cultural sensitivity and retain full capacity for freedom of speech.”
Scott M. Roberts

“The obsession with correct political belief and expression in art is stultifying the genre as it is necessarily exclusive. We are losing our voice in artificial, forced homogeny posing as tolerance. Propaganda-disguised-as-story drives readers away as agenda takes the place of wonder, excitement, character. and conflict.”
Scott M. Roberts
