I don’t have to read “Wesley Crusher, Teenage Fuck Machine”, Dottie. I lived it…. well, except for the fuck machine part.

In case you’re not on the Nerd Internet, you may not know that this piece of smut — yes, that quote above really does cite its title — that was unleashed last month is rocking the Amazon charts. (From the Amazon reviews: “You know, if it’s one thing that’s lacking in the Star Trek universe, it’s fan fiction.”) When will the elitist publications such as the L.A. Review of Books and Slate Book Review begin covering the popular literature of our time? If only Kathy Acker were alive to see how wonderful things are.
