    Ari Meermans, thanks for posting this. I've been seeing all over the web the way literary fiction and genre fiction get paired up, as though those were the two divisions of fiction, and I knew that it wasn't the case. If it was, it would mean that, unless you were writing about an invasion from space, or a dead body found in a refrigerator, then you are writing literary fiction. As long as you skip the aliens, you iz one hifalootin' writer of purtty prose.

    I'm glad someone did an Infographic on what the actual distinctions are, Literary and Commercial.
