My amateur advice to bloggers is to think up some meaningful tags and plug them into the above link, to see if the tag has been used and HOW it has been used.

I discover that most the the blogs there mention him only in passing, and mention him with a tone of ridicule.

I did find that a tag of “shortstory” does exactly what I want for my several short stories.
