Gifted Many Few: Some of you more literary types should take note that some of your favorite authors were despised while they were alive. A true merit of a writer is how well the works stand up after they are dead. I think 50 Shades has the staying power to be part of the culture for years to come. In fact, I think it will be noted as a defining moment in literature, along the lines of the Hemingway and Kerouac.
XMark: I haven't read it, but I know it started as a Twilight fan-fiction and later had its Twilight connections removed for the official published version.The internet is practically inundated with thousands upon thousands of horrible erotic Twilight fanfics. There's something to be said about how one managed to stand out above the rest. It must be good in some way or another. I'll never know, though.
