Defending the "Escapist" and "Formulaic"

Bothered by the put-downs she sees directed at genre fiction, Lowell -- who has written sci-fi, mystery and romance -- defends all three in a lengthy essay on her web site. "Contrary to what the critics tell us," she writes, "popular fiction is not a swamp of barely literate escapism; popular fiction is composed of ancient myths newly reborn, telling and retelling a simple truth: ordinary people can do extraordinary things."
