If you fancy an hour of hysterical laughter, then have a look at last year's winners of the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. The aim is to write the opening sentence to a truly awful novel.
I've sent in a couple of entries, in the SF catagory of course, and with each entry a permission form to allow my entry to be reprodcued in their compilation book. The book is due out in August, but I'm not entirely sure whether either of my entries will be in it; it may just contain the winning entries. Either way, it's worth a read.
