That's good!

Having once had a Top Secret clearance (this was many years ago, however), I just decoded part of the sentence from DrRocco's post, and the first three letters are these: 'S', 'H', 'I'. Unfortunately, I am unable to decipher the remaining letter.

Take a look at the preview for this book. It's something else. It's that bad. It does look like a drunk Ai wrote it.

It's quite obvious to me that these books are long-lost sequels to Joyce's Finnegans Wake, written by the Master himself but never revealed to the public. Joyce apparently anticipated the Nouveau Roman movement when he initially diverged from the classical literary from, thus setting in motion a fiction that - at best - can only be described as liberating!

Truly, we are in the midst of a literary paradigm shift of the utmost importance, and these newly-discovered works of genius should be disseminated to every genre-ridden reader ensconced in his or her own mummy-wrapped shell of comfortable denial!

I'm talking to you, Jon!

No thanks. I cling to my mummy wraps until I die.

You read 10 of these works and tell me which ones you would read again, read them again and I'll not read any of them.

It's kind of amazing how many of these there are. If you click on any of the "author's" names, you'll get a whole new batch, each with a random stock photo of a person on the cover:
Marce Holmes

I think my new favorite is "Mom of the Jill House" by Jill House.
