OK, a while back, Publish America, a vanity publisher (as opposed to a traditional publishing house) made a few....rude comments about the Science Fiction genre.
So, some thirty or so s/f writers decided to write the worst novel they could, and submitted it to Publish America under a psudonym to see if they would publish it. They made an offer, and sent a contract.
When they found out it was a hoax, they withdrew the contract. *g*
Wanna see this literary masterpiece? *g*
Be warned...it's a bit of an.."interesting" read. Each author was given a very brief plot outline, and told to write a chapter. Not told *which* chapter, mind you...it's......."interesting". (A computer program wrote chapter 34. It's.....interesting.)
"Interesting" is the best way to describe it....*g*
Oh, and I made it halfway thru Chapter 2 before having to quit. *g*
