There was a pretty funny essay about "the levels of greatness a fiction writer can achieve in America" in The Stranger last week. The lowest level is a "centipede in the darkness," who "has published seven books. One on Lulu, two on his personal blog, and four POD on small presses. Rarely, if ever, has sex with fans he meets on MySpace."
