Meanwhile, he’s been closely following the development of a Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation, which seems odd for a guy with arguable literary relevance, to be interested in Twilight fan-fic originally published under the name Snowqueen’s IceDragon (this is true, by the way, not something I’m making up).

So far so good.

After the jump, a few favorites.
