Ron Hogan Wants Times Sci-Fi Critic Tasered

Our two-headed literati known as GalleyCat doesn’t merely exist to be accessories to Judith Regan scandals. They also are well-heeled meta-critics of the New York Times Book Review. Today, co-editor Ron Hogan [above, left] turned his attention to a single writer, sci-fi guy and ex-Spin editor Dave Itzkoff [above, right]. Let’s just say Hogan isn’t exactly impressed with Itzkoff’s criticisms, nor editor Sam Tanenhaus‘ championing thereof:

It’s a given that the litblogosphere has it in for Sam Tanenhaus and the New York Times Book Review, with this blog counted among the critics. But I like to think that the ‘Cat has been supportive, albeit in a rather tough-love mode, of the changes Tanenhaus has executed in nearly three years on the job. But nestled among such successes is a columnist whose faults have become more glaring with each new effort — science-fiction reviewer Dave Itzkoff.
