Most inappropriately named hotel: 'The Big Sleep Hotel' In Cheltenham, England? - because in Raymond Chandler's novel 'The Big Sleep' meant 'Death'. 'Death Hotel' is not the best of names for a hotel. Even worse than the Bates Motel.
Most contriving plotter of detective novels: Agatha Christie? Because of her overly complicated plots with cardboard characters. Still, there's no arguing with success.
Most inspired fictional detective: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: Sherlock Holmes or should that be Edgar Allan Poe's Dupin? Both inhabit a dark, credible world.
Most underrated Science Fiction writers: H P Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith? For highly imaginative stories from the 1930s.
Most hiliarious science fiction comedy: Stanislav Lem's The Cyberiad? So much more inspired than the later Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
Most underrated play by Shakespeare: Cymbeline?
Most pointless remake of a film: Solaris (2003) Why bother doing this when Tarkovsky's 1972 original was so very good?
Most impressive monster horror film for its day: Original King Kong with Fay Wray?
Most inspired post war British comedian: Tony Hancock?
Most ineptly designed theatre: Elizabeth Scott's 1932 (and still standing) Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, England?
