Speaking of panning stuff...

Acephalous is panning Don Delillo. Normally, I wouldn't have any strong feelings about Delillo -- just kinda "eh," but after years of hearing the hype about him I finally read White Noise and found it mediocre and disappointing. Perhaps if it hadn't been hyped, I would have found it merely mediocre, but not so disappointing.

But, alas, it was so hyped, and I was so disappointed. I'm glad to see I'm not alone in thinking Delillo overrated.

  1. Just out of curiousity, did my email ever make it to you? I tried it from three different addresses, but I think I only got two fatal error messages back, so one may've gotten through.
