I like Good writing. I don't like Bad writing. I wish more Good writers would get published and don't understand why publishers keep producing books by Bad writers.
The term is bad. The actual product is widely variable but in the main conforms to Sturgeon's Law.
Not answering that.
Where is the "It depends" button?
Goodkind Epic Fantasy is Bad. GRRM Epic Fantasy is Good.
Some Epic Fantasy is Good if I am ill and on bedrest, Not So Good if I am busy with work and life....stuff like that.
