Horrible title aside, this book has quite a bit to offer. It is more a reference book than one to read start to finish. For beginning fiction writers, his "shapes" of fiction offer a way to think about the writing done not-quite-consciously. And in the creative writing classroom, the glossary that composes the latter part of the book offers an common frame of reference.
