Notably: It was on this day in 1824 that Beethoven’s Ninth premiered in Vienna. Overplayed as its fourth movement may be, it remains an awesome musical experience, especially if you immerse yourself in it from first note to last. It is also Brahms’s birthday (1833), and it is Tchaikovsky’s birthday (1840). It is also the anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania by German U-boat in the second year of the First World War. Woodrow Wilson howled at the allegedly cowardly act (nearly 1,200 lives were lost). But it was, in fact, an act of war: the Lusitania had been stuffed to the gills with weaponry, as later historians established. Finally, it is the anniversary of the ratification of the 27th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits Congress from giving itself a mid-term pay raise. Don;t tell the Palm Coast City Council.

The odd thing about pedantry, however is that it can’t be trusted. Many of the writers on this [best-sellers’] list are under the impression that if they do the factual spadework the fiction will dig itself in and hunker down solid and secure. The effect, unfortunately, is quite the opposite. It suggests that the writers are hanging on for grim life to what they know for fear of unleashing what they don’t know; they are frightened, in other words, of their own imagination. And they are right to be: they are up against one of the basic conditions of pulp.
