Bad fic

What bad fiction do you like?

Me, it’s military fiction. Not that all military fiction is bad. It’s not, by any means. But I read the poorly-written, barely-literate stuff just as avidly as I read the exemplars.

It’s because I was in the military, and it all strikes a chord with me. And it seems that a lot of the worst writers actually know the most about the military – having served – and so their version of the military never has any ridiculous garbage like saluting indoors (in most circumstances) or a helicopter pilot magically knowing how to drive a tank.

I don’t see it as a guilty pleasure, though. I read what I want to read. The literature and the pleasure police will just have to fucking deal.
