More popular than cryptography
I was recently talking to some coworkers about how arcane cryptography is and how it's inaccessible to non-specialists. In this discussion, someone made a comment something like, "It's not that small a niche is is? It's not like it's something as specialized as romance novels that only feature NASCAR drivers."
A few hours later I received an email containing a link to Harlequin's NASCAR series– a series of romance novels that only feature NASCAR drivers.
There's already a series of comics that features cryptographers. Maybe it's time for a series of romance novels that do too.
