Ha, ha!

Just found on my Livejournal friends list. This is a book written by some sci-fi and fantasy writers to prove a particular American publisher was actually a vanity publisher and would accept any old trash... So they attempted to write the worst book ever written. This is it.

It's definitely worth a read; it's great fun. In fact, it reminds me an awful lot of Jilly Cooper's Riders. The same sex-starved characters who sh*g anything that moves, with the plot (in this case, absent) being merely a substrate to carry the excruciatingly described bonking. The same awful cliches, poor descriptions of characters and parade of banal conversationalists in glamorous settings. But this is, ummmmm, a joke... Riders isn't...
