The h2g2 Virtual Library Unreal Reading List, Part 1

2 Conversations

A short while ago, lil responded to a journal entry of mine by remarking, 'I can tell you've been around the Prof too much.' The Prof and I discussed this remark, and decided not to reply. On the Prof's part, this is discretion being the better part of valour: lil knows where he lives.

She's got a point, though: hanging around the Prof can be an education in surrealism. He likes it that way, and so do we.

Recently, he let us in on a secret: he and his layabout friends (and other, possibly innocent bystanders)1 got together on a thread run by Jabberwock and started composing a list of book titles and authors. It's not that they all read books, you understand2. They just like to make up book titles and authors.

This is the first installment. How many more there are depends on how many of you write and beg me to stop. – DG

PS I hesitate to do this. I really do. But the participants insisted.

Should you be so like-minded as to have further reading suggestions of this variety, please….oh, lord, I shouldn't say this….please, choke, feel free to add them at the bottom of this page. (I'm going to hate myself in the morning.)
