My name is EBear, and I'm a failed reader.

Matthew Cheney outs himself as a failed reader.

I'm one too. I've failed to appreciate some of the best and brightest of literary and genre scenes. I've failed to read Irving and Updike, Miéville and Bain. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

One thing I have learned as a writer, however, is how to appreciate what they're doing even as I fail to enjoy it. I suspect that's a victory of sorts.
