I don't know whether it's apocryphal or not, but I'm told one of Rand's favorite editors, when asked about her popularity, responded with: "She's the best writer of children's fiction out there!"

She was. It's an adolescent, or pre-pubescent fantasy that, somehow, the dreadful, parasitic mass of the human race is getting all MY stuff!

They think they're Harry Potter, but they're just Death Eaters with no particular brains or flair.
