This, to my mind, is socially dangerous. At the least, reading well written fiction can help users of the more linear non-fiction, such as specifications, legal briefs, and technical manuals. At the greatest, we humans have the need for story, to engage in alternate realities, in reliving the might-have-beens of history. Without fiction, we will eventually face a visceral rebellion in the human experience - or we will surrender our humanity and become automatons.
