Sturgeon’s Law [...]

ccording to Sturgeon’s Law, 90% of anything is crap. It was named after Theodore Sturgeon, who came to the defence of science fiction in the 1950s. “The claim (or fact) that 90% of science fiction is crap is ultimately uninformative, because science fiction conforms to the same trends of quality as all other artforms,” Sturgeon mused, confirming both the truth and the futility of his theory – ultimately, it comes down to how one defines “crap”.
