24 It was not, however, until the paperback boom of the 1890s, sparked by the introduction of cheap case-binding machines, that the public’s appetite for genre novels became a matter of national debate. Genre fiction was denounced from the pulpit and the political soapbox for depleting the moral fibre of the country – the same country that did not see fit to ratify women’s rights until 1920. Typical was the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice and the Society for the Prevention of Crime, which advertised the goals of doing away with crime and vice by, inter alia, suppressing all literature about crime and detection.

Although unsettling, this conclusion flows from fairly common sense premises. One reason why it has not received the fanfare it deserves is that it has a potential to completely upturn the coverage model of literary education still practised in the majority of our institutions. It is true that statistics can be used to prove anything – including the truth. And statistics strongly support the blossoming of a Melville or a Malamud – indeed any number of them – in one of the many popular genre hothouses of our literary culture.

Still, as long as the press panders to sensationalism, human interest angles, and celebrity gossip, while Hollywood gorges on special effects, super-colour, speed-editing, and nascent 3D technology, the novel will remain safe from these image and throughput-oriented rivals. All the same, in order to facilitate access, to lower costs, and to heighten interactive appeal, literature will increase its use of other media. The general trend in leisure consumption is saturation: longer movies with surround sound, artificial sensory environments like Disneyland or Virtual Reality, Imax theatres, High Definition interactive T V, laser disk or DVD editing.
