A Funless Wonder is a writer who resolutely refuses to be amused or to find anything amusing in any situation that arises, especially those situations connected with the writing world in general and his/her own work in particular. Funless Wonders never crack a smile. They believe that the world and life itself is an utterly serious matter; or at least that is what they claim to believe. The truth is more likely that they desperately want to be taken seriously as 'proper writers' and regard any and all enjoyment generated by amusement, comedy and fun as a deep spiritual betrayal of this aspiration.
