From rimrunner:

If fantasy novels were subject to truth in advertising laws

Mercedes Lackey's Good Triumphs Because We Have Pretty White Horses
Jacqueline Carey's Pervs and Politics
Anne Rice's Angsty Vampire is Angsty

I know they aren't really the same genre, but I give you:

Jean M. Auel's Soft Core Porn amid Excruciatingly Long Descriptions of Plant Life and Rock Formations, Parts I-V

and

Diana Gabaldon's Soft Core Porn with Historical Anecdotes and Cringe-worthy Gaelic Expletives.

- League of Extraordinary Gentlemen aka Brain Candy for English Majors
- Andromeda aka Brain Candy for Occultists.

YOU try to make sense of the Greek Pantheon. Have you seen that family tree? It's a Mobius Tree.
