A Theorem on Genre Literature

Inspired to finally write this down by a terrible Steve Perry book I wish I hadn't paid $7.95 for:


The more your main characters "smile," "grin," or "chuckle," the worse your book is. Double penalties apply to every "crooked grin" and quadruple penalties apply to every "shit-eating grin."


I haven't quite figured out why it works yet, but trust me, it does.
