New Discovery

Been reading this website: Evil Editor. There's various fun that he has with the submissions that he gets and they are all very entertaining. For example, when commenting on submissions, he has a little game where the readers can choose, based on the title, the actual plot of the book.

Here's one:

Guess the Plot

The Shrimp that Sleeps

1. A book created entirely by matching random nouns with random verbs, and a few articles, prepositions, and conjunctions. Also, a vampire.

2. An ancient evil lurks beneath the mighty deep. Almost as feared as the Kraken, more terrifying than the Loch Ness Monster, it is . . . The Shrimp That Sleeps.

3. A scathing expose of the seafood industry, proving that not everything is as fresh as the consumer would like.

4. Mati is forced to decide whether or not to become a lady of the evening, like the proverbial sleeping shrimp.

5. Okay, Morty Wansch was small for his age, but Mr. Mullally's nickname for him in fourth period civics class was just mean. And when he wakes up, he's determined to get even.

6. A cabal of sinister mages predicts the future by reading malignant omens in restaurant leavings.
