I don’t much care for comfort and solace fiction. I like fiction that perturbs in major or minor fashion, fiction that plays off a reader’s assumptions, going in. Because if you haven’t roiled a reader’s status quo, you haven’t made her or him ponder and brood. You’ve simply entertained, like a clown or a monkey or a hack.
