The Rough Guide to Cult Fiction (Rough Guides Reference Titles)

The Rough Guide to Cult Fiction - Paul Simpson, Michaela Bushell, Helen Rodiss
What!? A guide to cult fiction that doesn't include the incredibly overrated Ayn Rand? Their criteria for what constitutes cult fiction is ridiculously slim, but certainly Ayn Rand has achieved the necessary "messianic" status in the estimation of her ardent followers, and her prose style meets their stated criterion: "The quality of writing is often beside the point" (6).

A quirky collection, to say the least. And what bright light suggested neon lime green for the headings and sidebars? That, in addition to the microscopic font, induces an instant headache.
