Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Carl Hiaasen in 2013

A native of perhaps one of the more... eccentric states in the Union, Carl Hiaasen has built his career writing both on the fictional and real life exploits of the citizens of Florida. Known for a strong sense of black and satirical humor, many of his novels involve situations that he insists isn't that much of a stretch for his fellow Floridians: from a crook being beaten with a frozen lizard, to a particularly ornery and sexually-deviant dolphin, to a female lead that continually has two songs clashing in her head, his novels are filled with all manner of colorful individuals. Not withstanding the more colorful of their type and behavior, Hiaasen's books usually contain recognisable yet unstereotyped characters that are often criminal, eccentric, mentally ill or challenged etc yet still make endearing protagonists - whereas his villains are the sort of individuals for whom his imaginative fates can be seen as richly deserved.
