Because bad writing has to be shared. And pointed-and-laughed at. ... This has to be the worst description of a person/character that I have ever come across, in fiction or not. Hopefully, you'll have as many laughs as I did while reading this.The original blog entry is here on vadonavan's page on Live Journal and stirred up a lot of comment ... and even some attempts to paint a portrait of the character described, including this one dubbed Our Lady of the Metaphors.
The extract is taken from is the second volume of a fantasy tetralogy Bronwyn : Silk and Steel by one Ron Miller. It managed to muster one and a half stars on Amazon.com.
Arthur C. Clarke is quoted as saying of it :
Ron Miller is unfairly talented.Though he was probably talking about Miller's ability to cause enormous mirth.
Silk and Steel deserves to become a cult classic ... and I desperately want a copy!
