A quick, enjoyable read. I think this is a topic that could be more extensively explored, but this works as an entertaining introduction. I got the impression, before Roberts ever referred in the text to posts, that this was a collection of blog posts and I believe this is the case. It's got that nice chatty blog vibe to it.

The chapter on Susan Sto Helit was my favourite, because it brought up some aspects of Susan that I hadn't considered before (like the fact that she's not ever the main character in her putative stories). Next time I reread Susan's stories I'll definitely be reading them through this lens.
