Hello MW. In response to your question: Really enjoyed it. Was a long time ago that I read it but it stuck with me. Changing tack slightly Stephen King's 'Gerald's Game' made me feel slightly sick towards the end. The denouement was great, but the run up to it was very unpleasant.

The Fan Man was good - quirky and hugely enjoyable. Penned by William Kotzwinkel if memory serves.

Don't blame me - I read Hard Times, Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, Roy Keane's autobiography, The Dice Man, American Psycho, The Henry Root Letters, Confessions Of A Window Cleaner and the scripts of Michael Palin's Ripping Yarns.

And A Stone For Danny Fisher and Papillon.

It's not's them....

So fuck off.

Tricky things is coracles. Hard to tell which is the front, what is the back, and where the sides are.

Let alone which way the thing will go when you start paddling.

Strictly for the experts I'd say.

This thread is just trivet porn.

Subliminal suggestion I reckon.

I don't usually read books but I did read one about a shark terrorising a community on Long Island.

Can't remember what it was called though.

Either that or TABOO!

I'm easy either way but I've given up on colours.

From General Discussion / Exclusive Preview of My Novel
Posted 9 Apr 16 01:07
I think Erskine's "book" preview is some sort of online scam, but I'm not falling for it. Oh no - I wasn't born yesterday. Or if I was I don't recall the detail but I digress.

Everyone knows that a "yoke" is a lump of wood slung around the neck of an ox to tie ropes to so it can pull stuff, or a lump of carved wood that humans slung across their shoulders to enable them to carry buckets of stuff.

Whereas a "yolk" is the yellow bit of an egg. The semi-globular bit that tastes nicer than the runny bit unless you're making meringues or something. But not omelettes because that just involves beating the contents of an egg to smithereens. So that doesn't count.

An erudite gentleman such as Erskin would surely be capable of differentiating between the two - seeing as he knows about obscure stuff like narwals and trivets and whatnot.

Erskin didn't write that - he knows better and has high standards.

Trust me - it's a scam. Next thing there'll be requests for bank details and pin numbers and stuff.

This Quint imposter doesn't fool me.

Think on.

Zackly mate. I'll shut up now and refrain from responding to that person in future.


It won't happen again.

Different is fairly flipping extreme regarding entirely non-conformist traits.

I think this thread is shit BTW - but I get a clean sweep.

Irrational at best Doc.

Oh do keep up. I love being insulted. Maybe I deserve it sometimes. Try harder though or I'll go elsewhere.

It isn't a gem. It's a bag of shit. That's my honest opinion.

It's shit.

And that's the problem here, which it has been for some time.

So what ya gonna do?

I'm going to PM God (Mark) and warn him that there's a nasty woman who's being abusive towards me on the site.

I'm furious I am.

There ought to be a law against vindictive old bags.

Ah but I'm quite a handsome dashing chap.

As you know.

I saw the damp patch and can only assume you didn't piss yourself.

I'm sure he did.

Count me out of your sad existence Queenie.

Ta very much.

Neither of you ever knew the man! The rank hypocrisy on display here is unbelievable!

Coming from somebody who regularly scribbled nonsensical bollocks about murder victims.

Get the fuck over yourself Queenie.

Nice yarn Jack.

Poor chap. Having been tasered myself once for not putting enough malt vinegar on a black pudding at Burnley market, I sympathise entirely with your character.

Pass the ketchup man!

Hi Bill

I enjoyed this, and I enjoyed your guide to writing spoofs in the magazine section.

I was so impressed that I had the guide laminated, framed and hung on the wall.

I refer to it all the time but it isn't much use as a train timetable.
