Interesting.  An article that reads, "I've never read Terry Pratchett.  Yet because I've read Mansfield Park, I know he sucks."

I love how he name drops Gabriel Garcia Marquez (who I didn't know had died last year).  I had read Marquez for class projects.  I don't much care for Marquez, but I can appreciate the contribution to writing without having read everything by him.  But Pratchett was also somebody of big ideas, not just poetic turns of phrase.

Even the literary world has its trolls, I guess.

Exactly, 'Never read him, but I know he's no good' isn't even trying to hide the trolling.
