The Bear does not want everyone to think he is just a buffoon. Here is a scholarly article he wrote on language and sexual identity and stuff.
Not really, but you might get a kick out of it. Especially if you are an Umberto Eco fan and recognize the name Derrida. (Be sure to note that in the comments, so we can all be impressed!) This is from the famous post modern essay generator. It is utter gibberish made up of jargon, and fake scholarly quotes by real figures - in other words, it is indistinguishable from real articles of this nature. In fact, one was submitted to a journal, and got published.
Yep. Editors of a journal could not tell the difference and published it for real.
No worries. The Bear does not write literature. He writes crowd-pleasing yarns with smokin' women and smokin' guns, using simple words and as many familiar tropes as he can cram into 160,000-ish words. Subplots? Confusing to the reader. Character arcs? Who cares? You want plot, I got your plot. Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. In chapter two people start dropping. 46 chapters later, they're still dropping.
Oh. It's a Catholic psychological thriller. Because the characters think sometimes. ("Man, she's smokin'," thought Bill as he killed another bad guy with his .48 pistol with poison bullets.)
Isn't that right, beta readers. Hello?
