It's simple, kumquat - it's just like a deteculative fiction story, without the detective bits. Of course, it can have detective bits if you want.

Not porn, no, Jerkass. Perhaps 'Erotic Thriller' would be a better description.

Don't you think 'Erratic Thriller' might be more accurate?

You might well be right there, HP!

Having seen some of the early proofs, I can confirm that the standard is woeful.

Hehe, yes indeed.

Not that I want to put anyone off requesting a copy of this awesome publication - it will be like nothing you have read before!

I'm certainly sending off my SAE. Although I fear I will not be contributing, the visual arts being more my forte - perhaps I could contribute some classy Jesse Jameson/Baarfindor style cover art!

I am afraid it has already been designed and approved, Digger:



Notice the slightly different title on the cover! That's class, that is.
