If this is the case, is explication permissable or should the author still find ways to convey information through dialogue and action?
My Reader #1 felt that was the main flaw with the first chapter of my novel--too much explication and I can easily omit a lot of it. By why did it work in I Married a Dead Man?
Is explication a dated technique in the novel?
Since there is so little traffic here, I guess I'll put this on crimespace too.
