The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

I just ran across this excellent essay, "Genre Tropes and the Transmissibility of Story" ( http://www.irosf.com/q/zine/article/10360 ) by Jay Lake and Ruth Nestvold. It talks about, among other things, the tropes of literary fiction and how reader expectations (of tropes in story) impede or advance a story in the reader's mind.

In my ongoing "tropes are genre" and "genre is tropes" and you need them to tell stories awareness campaign, I point at this article by Jay Lake and Ruth Nestvold and say, "Yeah, that." (With a tip of the hat to Delany's "Reading Protocols")
