Format: Hardcover
This book is fantastic! I am sure you will laugh at these intentionally bad sentences. I should disclose that I know Scott Rice and am one of the authors (2006 Grand Prize), but just know that all the other people whose silly sentences are in this book were and are my inspiration. I am writing Bart Lasiter - Detective stories now for publication soon. Watch out!

If you like puns, non sequiturs, and general overall silliness, buy this book. It contains entries from the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest [...] and the entries range from the stupid to the sublime, and on occasion you will encounter the pinnacle of the bad idea for an opening sentence to an imaginary book. Every time I turned a page I'd find at least one sentence that locked up my brain and left me temporarily paralyzed with my jaw hanging open.

A great gift for that weird, nerdy bookworm in your life. You know, the person you only see during the holidays who sits quietly in the corner reading Chess Life. That guy.

Supplied promptly in advertised condition at agreeable price. Very funny, although the fact that the entries have all been invented does make the humour pall after a while. If only it had collected genuine examples of dreadful writing, but no doubt that would have upset too many admirers of the writers concerned.

No help at all to aspiring writers but a very funny book I am pleased to have in my library of nonsense!

I laughed out loud which I almost never do! I even felt compelled to submit a bad entry of my own.
