Title: The Tales of Mr. Oliver Tuppence
Post by: Cramulus on May 24, 2009, 04:35:15 pm
I'm not sure if I've posted this before. I wrote this in 2006-ish, during a period of isolation and insanity. (I was working from home writing professional LARPs, to give you and idea of the weird world I lived in) So without further ado, here are four very short stories about Mr. Oliver Tuppence, a magical flying pair of sunglasses.

This reminds me of the books I read as a small child.

It would be wonderful to have these illustrated, and try to sell them to publishers as children's books.

I would enjoy seeing the rejection letters very much.

I would enjoy it even more if they did not get rejected.

I insist that the word "batshit" be left in the text regardless of audience!







                                     not really, but it would be highly amusing.

Someone might actually publish it as a children's book for adults

in fact, I am loving on the idea of highly adult children's-format books for adults.

It's what Shel Silverstein would have wanted.

Heck yeah, it does! Get this sucker printed on heavy cardboard, like "Hop On Pop"!

I'm pretty sure I have Shel to thank for my current personality. I read that stuff when I was maybe 10.

I fucking love these.
How the hell did I miss this shit the first go round?

Cram= super genius, like Wile E. Coyote, without all the fail

I would totally buy a set of these books for my son, who's no longer little, and he'd love the shit out of them.

God damn.
