    On realism, grimdark and childishness

    This is the problem with grimdark as a genre, quite apart from the silliness of the name. It's not really used neutrally like sword and sorcery or high fantasy to describe stuff with features in common. It tends to either be used positively, in which case it becomes a huge catch-all including all that stuff I like, or it's used negatively, in which case it becomes a trash chute for the stuff I don't like. This leads to loads of straw-man arguments and people talking past each other.
  2. I read em quite recently but I shall happily follow along...
  3. It's not what you do it's the way that you do it. That's what gets results.
