Go for it. But actually, even if you do write super literary SF’ized Bonfire novel, don’t expect it to get a whole lot of readership or make much of a splash. People don’t want to read anything longer than a single screenful of text these days. Books don’t matter as much as they did even as recently as Tom Wolfe’s heyday. But maybe your SFBOTV novel can be turned into a movie, or better yet a TV series, in which case you CAN hope to capture a few eyeballs for your 15 minutes.
