I think most of us would be familiar with that feeling.
I still find the odd exciting fiction - often it is only published on the internet.
And there are writers I'm always amazed at: Elizabeth Bowen, Thomas Ligotti, Robert Aickman...
And I've been excitd by a whole tranche of good Horror stuff in some new books by new writers recently: eg: by Richard Gavin, Matt Cardin, Gary McMahon, Gary Fry, Simon Strantzas, Mark Samuels ....
....and Tamar Yellin.
It's never too late to cease being jaded with literature.
