I noted that I had often said the same thing, but when I said it, it came out like this: "This is not to my taste."
To which womzilla said, quoting Trudeau without missing a beat, "In my day, we called them 'D's."
I read and reviewed the first of Martin's series, finding it akin to a giant bowl of popcorn (I'll just have one more handful. One more, after this one.) and recognizing that I really didn't want to read the rest of the series. And, I have not had any problem finding reading material, including mythopoeic reading material, part of our mythic heritage, and all of that. I cannot find any evidence that Martin's work caused any harm to the subgenres I love.
I don't eat broccoli. It is very much not to my taste. Its existence and its fans and connoisseurs have not made chocolate go away.
Oh, and Martin's Fevre Dream totally rocks.
