Genre - Information Dump

Today I’m writing while wearing my editor’s hat.

A while back I told a friend, another editor, that I was getting frustrated with reading books in the genre of information dump. Now this was kind of a joke because there is no such genre, but it seems I have been seeing a lot of manuscripts lately with a lot of information dumped on the reader.

One of the most common ways I see this happening is two people together in a car, talking to each other. One of the characters will spend several pages telling the other one about something.
