Assad, Josef: The Banjo Players Must Die. v1, 8 Mar 2008
From the authors web site:
For the first time, the truth about the monumental cock-up that is Doomsday is revealed. Centuries of sloppy research and abysmal story telling skills converge to bring you The Banjo Players Must Die, an account of celestial incompetence and molested rodents.
A new novel, Creative Commons licensed, which could have been written by fifteen monkeys given about two weeks with well oiled typewriters.
Celebrate the release of my first novel, if you must, by expressing outrage and indignation that the innocent term "novel" has been sullied so.
From a review of the book posted on authors website:
"Josef Assad's novel should be the next big thing. Think Chuck Palahniuk meets Thomas Pynchon meets Douglas Adams. And of all of it- or so the voices in my head seem to tell me-told in the familiar voice of Monty Python. On Crack. To be taken in small does only-there's so much going on. And yes, some of the puns are not as funny as the author thinks, but some are outright brilliant. And the footnotes! Read the footnotes!"
Note: This book can be pretty vulgar at times so if you are easily offended I would stay away from this one.

Hey, thanks for posting this! When I released this novel 7 months ago, it was my hope that people would like it sufficiently to begin passing it around. Finding this therefore thrills me.
Hope you liked it, and yes, Madame Broshkina is right: this is not a children's book. It does contain a fair bit of off-color language and narrative.
