Title: Sample Chapters
Post by Forum Administrator on 26. Mar 2009 at 13:38

If you haven't already read these, I noticed that there are sample excerpts of
All the Bells on Earth
http://shortcovers.com/shortcovers/ALL-THE-BELLS-ON-EARTH/sc-8UZqLRcTXkKgltJ8t7VSJg/page1.html

and

The Rainy Season
http://shortcovers.com/shortcovers/The-Rainy-Season/sc-zU30S97_AkelJyJuss7EJg/page1.html

on the Shortcovers website. [NOTE: LINKS NOW DEAD]

A funny little exercise that: Read the first chapter in a book, and see if you can guess the rest.

James Blaylock: It seems to be another novel about the weather (mainly rain).
Philip Dick: a small guy with small life-problems?
Orson Card: A juvenile about a smart kid?
John Irving: Ditto?
- Try it yourself. Its fun.

Pop-musicians usually put the strongest song as number one on the album. How many authors do likewise?

!!! it's not my fault!!!
I wrote the correct name for this famous american author, but the internet-censorship-computer didn't like the last word.

Philip Thingy - my "four-legged-animal-with-longer-ears-than-a-horse"!

Fixed it - the forum still had all of the default word-censoring that was installed with the software.
