Can't decide if it's meant as irony or not.

One last post to keep you all amused in my absence:

http://www.ansible.co.uk/cons/tac_thog.html

A collection of the best of the Wrighty bad bits from a lot of bad SF books. Including some from people who should have known better.


• `She knew how to embroider and milk a cow.' -- Connie Willis, Doomsday Book

• `When she looked at him, something inside her lurched, and she swallowed her errant innards down, holding them still by not breathing for a time.' -- Sheri S. Tepper, Sideshow
