books to make my flist's heads explode: John Ringo

March 22nd, 2008 (10:59 am)

Lately, some folks on my f-list have been looking at Lord King Bad profic. brown_betty gave us LEOPARD LORD, and cereta reviewed THE SHEIK, and burger_eater pointed me to Smart Bitches, Trashy Books's take on Shayla Black's DECADENT. These books, it should be admitted, are deeply awful, and as portrayals of their authors' ids, they're more than a little alarming. You don't want to look, but you can't look away. The awfulness becomes sublime.

So why am I commenting about this? Well, because I feel a little like Richard Dreyfuss in JAWS, during the scar scene: "I got that beat. I got that beat."

Permit me to introduce John Ringo.

Contains excerpts of fiction revolving heavily around 1) rape and 2) whores. If you"re bothered by this kind of thing, YOU REALLY DO NOT WANT TO READ ABOUT THIS. Even though it"s so bad it"s funny.Collapse )

rose is a rose scared kitty

I have tried reading this post a few times now and I still can't get all the way through it, but I felt I should comment anyway on how much I adore that it exists.

I just want to say this is still one of my favourite book reviews ever.
